    sprockets

    right now im running a 44-16, but i want to switch to a 36-13. what is a good 36 tooth sprocket for the money? i was thinking of a mosh digital 2. i dont really need anything with a guard, cuz ill be riding trails. the hub i am running now is not cassette so the smallest freewheel i can get is 13.

    five bmx makes a really light sprocket, plus they give me them free, but i'd run it if it weren't free, but i think it's like 35, check the new dans comp mag

    Get a quality sprocket. Cheap ones often aren't round, which causes your chain to tighten and become slack as you pedal, resulting in dropped chains and wear on your drivetrain.

    That said, as long as you're buying top-shelf stuff, one's pretty much as good as the next and the rest is aesthetics / brand loyalty.

    15 is the lowest you can go, unless you have a flip flop

    i would suggest a sprocket that has teeth, as opposed to one without.
