Not to mention it pulls just fine above 60.
To expand on this a little, I am currently running a 17T / 36T and not having any problems. I only am using 6th at speeds above 60 mph. 72 mph is about 6000 rpm. I shift less around town and have not seen a down side. If I keep the bike in the right RPM range, acceleration is not a problem.
