I got my 550 with 16T/40T and it really sucked at highway speeds of 65-75mph. It was to the point where I could barely stand being on the **** thing at anything over 62mph. Felt like sitting on a **** lawnmower.
Changed to 17T/38T as soon as I could find the right front sprocket and man, what an incredible difference... I'm not only more comfortable at 75mph, but my mpg's went from 60 to 63.
