there difference is that one coasts and one... doesnt

and powerband, 46x17 is a completely worthy gearing. if you are reasonably strong you can still bomb hills (and with that gain ratio, much faster than people who see a hill and downshift), but you also retain the luxury of not having to spin like a madman down any sort of decline.

happy colored marbles.
