Re: Tyre and Sprocket sizes (Sime or anyone)
In the US, the front sprocket is a 16T. Originally, I went to a 15T and left the rear sprocket as a 43T standard. It was really good like that. Then, numnuts here decided to get greedy, and ordered a 45T rear sprocket with his SSA conversion. Now the bike is too edgy and I can't put any kind of power down in 1st gear.
I'm going to put the 16T back on the front (and leave the 45T rear), but when I order a new rear sprocket, it will be a 43T and I'll then put the 15T front back on. There, did I confuse you enough?!! LOL!
