I need to do the math, was thinking of dropping a tooth in front and adding about 3 in back. perhaps I may add one in front and go up into the low 50's in back. As long as I can still reach 100 on the top end, my big goal is to add as much low end as possible.Regards- Jonathon Jay "Cynicism is an unpleasant way of telling the truth." - Lillian Hellman> Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2008 10:27:28 -0600> From: 1kperday at> Subject: Re: New sprockets and chain> CC: gpzlist at> > Generally if you go much SMALLER than stock on the front, it's harder> on the sprocket and the chain, because fewer teeth and a smaller> diameter have to perform the work/load, and the chain has to turn a> sharper corner.
