i heard 41-15 is good (but it takes strength)



as far as what i would do, i would go with one of the standard ratios...like either 44-16 or 39-13,


Dans Comps Catologs have the ALL the ratios so you can decide which one is best for you and whatever/how ever you ride...

although i would not suggest going below a 28/10

i'm running 45-16...been racing for 8 years, riding that ratio for about 4...works beautifully. get a decent gate and keep your speed through the track, no worries about spinning, especially on downhill tracks (i.e. south park)
