does anyone know of any good Sprocket's that can take the abuse of sprocket slides and stuff like that...what about a good chain that can take the abuse as well?....i was think something along the lines of a Shadow Interlock chain with an Odyssey compact chainwheel with a compact gaurd..33t

No, it's not any easier to get on the ledge/deck with a larger sprocket.

And the Shadow chain? Stupid idea.

Really. That's funny, because the 510HX is stronger than the 410H, dumbass. It's the exact same chain, but with mushroomed pins so the sides don't blow out so easily.

And what's my favorite trick, you ask? Sprocket slides. And what chain do I use? The 510HX. And how often does it break? Once a month, tops. I broke a 410H five times in two hours.

first of all no need for a smartass attitude and also if you break your chain even once a month you should give up on sprocket slides..... ive been riding a KMC 410h for like 6 years now its gone thru sprocket slides and 4 different gear ratios and its fine... so i would take my 410h over a 510 anyday.

Well, he must not be doing very many sprocket slides if he's never broken it. I do several hundred of them in a given month, and I don't run a guard.

He use to do sprocket grinds, but now he mostly dose sprocket stalls since he is running 30 11 gearing.

i don't think they make 36t blackjacks in 3/16. if you use a 3/16 chain on regular teeth, the teeth become very thin and they snap off.

i broke a 415 chain while doing a sprocket grind down a rough, unwaxed concrete ledge.

wow... what a dunce. if you have a chain for 6 years (i doubt it will last that long), just buy a new one. they cost about $15 .

It may be "stronger" than a normal chain (which it's not), but the chain stretch issues with half-links in general negate any pros for the chain; a normal chain will last you a while if you're not doing any sprocket tricks on it, but a chain amde entirely of half-links under the same conditions won't last half as long because the chain will stretch much faster.

ya mean 3/16" teeth and 10 mm thick. It is one seriously beefy sprocket. I ran it for a while and people were pretty awed at its sheer beefyness.
