At the risk of getting flamed I am asking... What size sprockets/gearing you using?After a few miles on my new build I am thinking the 17T front 48T rear with 630 chain is in need of a change. I don't anticipate much slab time with this bike so I am thinking about changing sprockets size for a bit more pep. Thoughts? Input?
The 17/48 combo is usually with a 530 chain. The increase in size to a 630 drops the number of sprocket teeth front and rear. Sure we're talking about the same thing?In my opinion 17/48 is the best al around compromise, as the stock setup was 18/48. You could go to a 16/48 but you'd be turning alot of revs at highway speeds. Increasing the rear may foul the chainguard, if you're running one.Wookie: I didn't know there was a 520 conversion either. Sources?
