Smaller rear sprocket
« on: March 30, 2018, 12:52:19 PM »
Don’t want to start another long thread all I want to ask is if I drop down to a 42 tooth on the back will I have to take links out of the chain
I prob won’t bother if the answer is yes but was watching Cuban rider last night and reckons drops cruising revs and makes second gear more usable

Hi Wayne I have dropped mine just two teeth, no need to reduce chain size and still have adjustment left. It has dropped the revs some but I really cannot notice it during normal riding ( does not effect acceleration ) but will not really know how it is on tour yet.

I would like to go 42 or 43, I ride with a passenger most of the time and would like to know how the 42pulls and if it also helps fuel range?
.914x.6096x.914. Only if she is 1.6002!
Sounds better in us measurements.

As in earlier post which is 11 pages long I almost fell a sleep going through the pages pulling away no problem more relaxed at motorway speeds better use of gears round the twisties but don’t change it for fuel economy makes hardly any difference
