I just went from 43/18 to 43/17 and like the improved low speed
tractibility.  I never needed a 60mph 1st gear and pulling away
from a stop now requires little or no clutch slippage.

The change in 6th looks to be 1 mph per 1k rpm (or ~2mph per 1k
rpm from the 43/19).  Where 5k in 6th indicated 85mph before,
it's now 80mph.  Would I reinstall the 18t for a cross country
trip?  Perhaps.  I'll report on mpg after I have run a few tanks
