    Gearing and chain questions

    Saw that Im in need of new chain and sprockets to my bike.
    Have been looking on 16-44 gearing because many people say thats a nice gearing for mixed driving, is this right or should I have another gearing?
    I do think that the bike has standard gearing now.

    And how long chain do I need for the 16-44 gearing if I buy that? Can I use the 108 chain or do I need a longer one? Running 180/60 tire at the rear.

    Thanks in advance.
