Sprockets

Ok I'm new here, like new as in just made a profile right now. I'll try this section since I used to ride bmx. If u have a 22t sprocket can u run a rear wheel with a 16t freewheel? I'm from the old school bmx. Where parts were bigger and longer lasting. Lol...

You can but it will be like riding a trials bike. You will not get any speed at all. If your running a 16t you should get around a 44 for the front.

Ya that's what I figured too but wasn't sure.. A 44t won't fit on in, I was trying to save some cash rather then buying a hole new wheel, but that doesn't seem like it's gonna work lol.. Thanks for the reply.
