    Hi, i have a 80cc (66cc) HT engine and have it currently mounted on a bike with 20 inch rims. My top speeds and cruising speeds are terrible with the stock gearing (10t to a 44t) so what gearing should i use to keep up with a mate that i go riding with who has his on 26 inch rims. Thanks in Advance

    somewhere down around a 34T, but I doubt anyone makes that as a simple mount

    yea i love the torque as i can really pull up steep hills and put-put in and around tight trails, but on open roads and such im needing a taller gear. thanks for the replies guys looks like ill be going with the 32t, thanks again.

    A suggestion, keep that 44t laced up and get another rear wheel for the 32t for easy swap out. the 44t like you said is god for hills and you can pull heavy loads with ease, like if you have a trailer, the 44t makes a good grocery getter OR tight trail put-putter.
