    25-9 and 28-10 apparently creates more problems with chain wear; I'd stick with a 30-11.

    The 25-9 can be rough on the chain. Some chains won't work on any thing smaller than 10 I think because of the size of the plates. 30-11 is a real good ratio for cleaarence.

    your chain wears too fast, if you run u-brakes on chainstay your chain will hit the brake post. a 3/32 chain will not bind up like bigger 3/16" or fat 1/2"x1/8". all that is a fad for racing, but a fresh new idea to make street/dirt parts stronger.
