Eddy Dawkins, Theo Bos, Denis Dmitriev, Matthijs Buchli and IIRC also Shane Perkins are all aboard the Big gear hype train. Theo Bos even posted a video of him training standing starts in Japan with a custom setup of 58x10.

The pursuit has also seen a rise in gear inches since the acceleration part is minimal in that event.

Elimination and tempo are just suicide with big gears but I could see myself running big gear in a scratch or a points race if I know the average speed will be high (and that i can hold/lead the pack at that speed)
