chainwheel teeth amount help

i need to buy a new chainwheel for my haro mirra pro and the problem is the chainwheel i want (the black kink OG chainwheel on danscomp), might not work. My bike shop says I need a chainwheel thats 44t to match up with my hub, the problem is the black (I dont want silver) kink OG only comes in 43t and 45t, would those work, and if one of them would work, which one would be better for street?

save 20 more and you have a tree... why spend now for something that will bend in a few months when you can save up for one month if necessary and buy one that will not.

ON SUBJECT: Your LBS owner is a moron, once again.

You can run a 30 tooth sprocket if you want (actually, that would probably hit the brakes if they are chain stay mounted)... Anyways, you can run anywhere from about 42 to 46 without a drastic change in how you pedal. The more teeth, the harder it is to pedal, but the faster you go. The less teeth, the easier it is to pedal, but the slower you go.

Add more teeth, and you may need another link in your chain.

Take teeth away, and you may need to take a link out of your chain.

Over ONE tooth though, you probably can just switch it and it won't really affect your chain that much.

if you run small (33 or so) sproket and you aren't happy with how fast it goes, but like the size, can you get a smaller freewheel and make it harder to pedal so you go faster?
