Thank you. Good eye on the gearing, yes it is 22T. This is my 1st foray into different ratios. I was surprised by how just a couple of teeth on the rear and chain ring, made such a difference. I also have a blue Sport that has the 44/18. I'll call the Superbe a city/short haul. I did swap out the gears and pins from a pristine older spare SA hub and now the Superbe's hub has a much smoother running and shifting. The seat is actually a Champion Flyer. I am working on tweaking for a good fit. If it's level it seems to push me forward. A slight nose up, I sit better but there's a bit of interference with the male hardware. I got a good price used, but it wasn't broken in, very new stiffness to it.
