    I think every time somebody purposely desecrates a word to save time they should lose a finger.

    Also, mostly because they are lighter and stronger. Keep the one you have until it's bent so bad it cant be pounded back, then get a new one. I know of so many people who think they can just buy a smaller sprocket and just have it work, to have a smaller sprocket work you must also have a proper rear set-up.

    The size of your chainwheel doesn't matter as long as you stay on or close to the ratios. The only thing that you might want to invest in is some more agressive tires and good brakes. I find it's always nice to have brakes no matter what your riding but especially if you are riding dirt.

    It's not fun blowing the pedals and going off the next lip without feet or with no speed.


    Actually i lied. It's fun as hell, but you better know how to jump off!

    and pretty much, stay with the ratio.

    once your current one gets messed up i would go for a smaller one just because you said you ride street and its harder to bang up a smaller one

    Actually, I was kidding, Eightdip. The truth of the matter is that the size of your wang means pretty much nothing to a girl. It's just made into a big thing because guys try to prove they are better than other guys.

    P.S I didn't really mean to say coz I just do it sometimes by accident after I've been talking on msn or something so sorry for not being perfect.

    True that. But there are a few good off ratio gearings that plenty of people try/use.

    Get a Tree sprocket!

    any sprocket with TREE BIKE CO on it will be better than every other sprocket available.
