Aluminum or Steel Rear Sprocket?

Recommended Posts

Its not gona make much difference either way.  The weight savings isnt enough that you will ever be able to feel it.  And the low power of this bike probably wont wear the alu sprocket out much faster.  If you dont keep up on chain maintenance then the alu will wear faster. 

 

Basically it comes down to, the steel will last longer.  The alu will give you a tiney bit more performance that you wont even be able to feel.  Take your pick.  Either way it dosnt make much difference.

gnath, is that what you are running?  Where do they sell these to fit the L?  PN#?

 

I have not bought one yet .......... click on the pic ...  :thumbsup:

I will put a 14 up front with this but, if you do not want to gear it down that low you could go with a 15 up front ...  :prof:

No 42 tooth.  Bummer.  I was looking to start with the 13/42 combo.

 

14/45 is the exact same gearing but, would require a nice new pretty gold chain ...  :banana:
