Most cyclists are not able to spin out  a 26er MTB with 42 or 44/11 gearing so putting on bigger rings is generally completely pointless and will make zero difference to your top speed. A 44T ring with an 11T sprocket will start spinning out at about 50kmph, maintaining that speed on the flat is pro tour time trial level, factoring in drag and the like from the none aero MTB riding position you would need to putting out over 700W,

Totally agree. Since I bought this better mtb a few months ago, I jog less cycle more. But cycle is too relax compared to jogging. Cycle need longer time to burn calories cos it's relatively more relaxed compare to jog. Partly this mtbs is too good. Too smooth and easy.
So recently put on weight.
