"you're in your big ring and little cogs 80% of the time?"

Yes - I've only need to use the small front ring 1x.

Going down a mild grade, I can't get past 30 mph, no matter how fast I pedal. Speed measured by an older Garmin Edge 500 (a cast-off my brother gave me), but no cadence monitor.

My brother was over last night, he had not seen the new Salsa. He said I wouldn't notice any difference with the 48 tooth and should only try the 50. He said I would also need a new chain, and the whole process could be going down a bit of a rabbit-hole.
