PostSubject: Dual sprockets   Tue May 27, 2014 6:46 pm

Hello,

I have a R model with a extra set of R wheels.

I was thinking of going to a 45 tooth sprocket with the stock bridgestone tires for commuting and using a 47 tooth for more off-roading, dual sport riding.

Can I use a 110 link chain for both sprockets? I really don't want to change chains with my wheel swap.

How will the 45 tooth do for commuting?

Thanks

If it were me I would leave the rear sprockets the same and just swap the front. That does not have a big impact on chain length.

Right now I am running 14/50 on both sets of wheels and the bike seems happy at all speeds. If I were to do the COBDR again I may consider dropping to a 13 tooth front to help compensate for the power loss at altitude.
