The bike is currently equipped with a triple front gears 48, 38 and 28 tooth rings.
I typically bike routes ranging from 20 to 60 miles on rails-to-trails paths, so therefore mostly level. My total stop time is usually below 5 minutes (only for cross traffic).
For my cadence my normal gear setting is the 48 tooth and gear 6 out of 7 on the back. It is extremely rare that I ever use the 28 tooth gear. And only infrequently downshift to the 38 tooth gear.
My cadence is about 60 rpm and my average speed is about 13 to 14 mph. I’m not looking for super speeds in excess 25 mph. But I would like to increase my range to 100 miles which means I would be looking to use the minimal motor assist as possible.
The bike tires are 26”
