Std reduction of gearbox is 6.168. My new first is 5.896. The new second is 4.803.
But probably you calculated that already based on the number of teeth for the various gear wheels mentioned in a earlier post.
Truly flat roads would certainly make it easier. It's hard to find those in my area.

Nice work on the gears, is the gear-changing mechanism going to be on the input or output side?
