I have a 13 tooth on the front of a 250s (I think 14 is standard), which seems about right for trails and b*ggering about on fields. It tops out on the road, but that's not really what a 36 year old bike is for. Or a 52 year old git sitting on it. And falling off it. Mind you, I thought I was giving it a hard time at 13 stone......

To be honest, I haven't tried other combinations, that's just what was on it when I got it. But the ratios seem about right for what I was doing, which is what counts. I'd be interested to see what you try, but for trials rather than trails, I'd guess a fair-bit-lower-than-standard gearing would be good.
