Yeah, it's nice. The gearing is super high, which is common for these bikes. It's been a while for me since I've ridden one with stock gearing. Then again, since the rear wheel has been replaced, the cog might be even smaller than original.

I took care to ride it differently than I usually ride. I didn't try to spin. Easy does it. I got the hang of it, but I'm not sure I can keep it up.
