The trick for me is to find that balance of power and speed. The Cincinnati area must be alot more hilly than Delaware. I have already changed the rear sprocket to (Don't feel like going to the garage and counting the teeth) a smaller one. If memory serves I am 6 teeth smaller than the stock one. It does alright except on extreme uphill slopes. If I could get the tranny to NOT shift until ~20mph then it would pull the hills better.
