    need a MC 29er gear suggestion

    Just picked up a like new 08 or 09 monocog 29er. I got it to mostly ride on a few differant local paved trails after work during the week. First rigid, first 29er, first ss. Went out on the maiden ride tonight. The bike was awesome except I felt like my legs were mixing cake batter. The gearing is 32/18 and pretty far from ideal. I'm in east central FL and one of the trails is nearly flat and the other two are mildly hilly (not real hills) but definately not flat. Open to any suggestions and thanks in advance, C

    Cogs are cheap try 32/16 Some say not to go below 16on the rear.

    Chain rings are a bit more 33/18 or 34/18
