As I have posted earlier, I just got back from Colorado after riding with my son up Mt. Evans (14,140 ft or so). My son was running his stock 46 tooth and I was running my 44 tooth that I've had on for almost 2 years. I noticed that he was pulling away from my quiet constantly through the ride and coming out of turns. At the time I really didn't equate why at the time, but now I realize it was the gearing difference.
I changed back to the 46 tooth yesterday and, yep it's a different bike. I don't intend to drone along the interstate so it's the 46 for me.
