I currently ride 28-10 which is a perfect set up, but i am buying a new back wheel with a 9 tooth, how much harder will it be to peddle, cos i dont really want to get a new driver?
That will give you a reference.

a 28-9 will be harder to pedal, but not too hard. and youll go faster than normal too. but if you wanna keep a normal ratio, then just spring for a new sprocket too.

It would be a noticeable difference in how easy it is to pedal. A 28-9 is a 60.66 rollout whereas as 28-10 is 54.9. That's quite a lot.

Yes, it will be harder to pedal.
It will be exactly 1.1111111111 times harder to pedal. Whatever that means to you...
