    sprocket stalls without a guard?

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    My chain has a hella bad tight spot. I think it's because i'm running 22 - 8.

    A loose chain+riding longer distances can have a fair effect on the sporcket.
    Especially if its an imperial.
