I see all theses threads about changing the sprocketsizes to improve acceleration or reduce revs. I think it's very cool that wecan change gear ratios easily with a bike. Much more involving in the carworld. Personally, my goal is to significantly shorten my gears on the gixess.My gears are way too long to my taste and I don't care about increasing cruisingrevs. Now, I barely use the 6th gear anyway. So it sounds like I'll be trying-1 Front and +2 Back with my present 190-55-17 tyres. Maybe I'll try in 2progressive steps, I'll see.
In any case, this is not my point in this thread. What Idon't see in any other thread is what brand to use, what characteristics tolook for, etc. The mod is so cheap, I don't think price is much of a factor. Isimply want quality and strength, and ideally something lighter than stock.
What sprocket brands are good for these goals?
I'm also wondering if the rubber cushioned version isrecommended in the front?
I guess a simultaneous change of chain may be nice if itsaves weight, but is it really noticeable?
This upgrade is all about acceleration performance forme. But of course I want it to be drivable and don't necessarily want to fightfor wheelies too much. I.e. I want to be able to make the bike pull hardforward, not up.
