Default RE: gearing

What size tyres are you planning to use (60mm)?
What tooth count spur gear (55T)?
What's the internal gear ratio of the rc18mt (2.5:1)?
How fast do you want to aim for at 100% throttle with mid pack voltage (30mph)?


Plug the numbers in this Calculator (estimator). Should give you a starting point within a tooth or two... 11T or 12T?
