My 75 Pro has 52/43 with 14-26 6 speed in the back. I use to have a 71 International with 52/44 with more aggressive 14-24 in back.

I am also surprised that the 75 Pro seems to have more rake and to be a little more relaxed than a 78 Pro I use to own. The 71 International was also more relaxed with a longer wheel base than my current 74.
