The original (44,16) ratio handles hills and flats very well and is a great ratio for general "round town". I bought this bike to use as a starter for track racing. I've changed the fork (which is a tad heavy for what I wanted), handlebars (to drops), pedals (to suit my cleats) and the gear ratio (adding a larger front chain ring specifically for track racing). I liked that I could convert easily (with the tool that comes with the bike) to a fixy or free wheel hub. The wheels have held up really nicely to both round town riding and the demands of track racing. Tyres are good as well. The brakes and frame (including fittings for bottles and a rear rack) are a great package for the money and it was delivered about 4 days after I paid online. I'm an experienced bike mechanic. It may be worth finding an experienced bike mechanic friend to help you set it up if you're not used to bike builds. There's nothing too worrrying but it's good to make sure you've got it right. For the money it's a great little bike.
