well if you get a 14t freewheel you will have a balanced gear ratio thingy...
39/14 is just like running 44/16

if you wanna a little lower gear for street or whatever go with the 39/15 setup..but 39/14 is balanced...

39/14 is a good setup unless your going to be riding around up and down hills then you should run something like a 39/16.

as of right now a run a super low gear
36/16
i don't get very much speed with it at all and i don't need that much speed cause i ride mostly street...

i am getting...however...a cassette hub so that i can run an 13t driver for a normal gear ratio with my 36t sprocket...

that guy is sorta right then...anythign lower than a 16t would be fine for street riding...you could go with the 16t even but i wouldnt' suggest it...

yeah, but does it move with the chainwheel so you have to put the cranks in a certin direction to guard the wheel?

Of course. You always ride with the same foot forward.

yea...then when you do some sprocket bashes or whatever it will be in the right position for whatever foot you ride forward..
