Yeah. And in traffic, not having to shift-down/shift-up.
Yeah, with good aerodynamics it should do better at high speed, and with gearing change it should go faster. Adjusting the weights (dr pulley etc) should do that, effectively, without having custom gears made, right? What I'm not clear on is whether heavier or lighter weights will give me slower start but higher top speed.
