If you are looking at Soulrebelrastaman's bike those are 20" Animal MTT tires. If you are looking at my bike, they are 24" Odyssey Path P-Lytes.
You just want to make sure you maintain a gear ratio that works for you. The 10/28 drive train that is on my bike is a nice compromise between ease of pedaling and top speed. If you have say a 16 tooth driver with that 44 tooth sprocket, it will have a similar feel to what I'm riding.
I guess the main advantage to a smaller sprocket is a marginal weight savings and possibly aesthetics.
yeah i was talking about the OP post, maybe its a bigger width, i noticed alot of tires are starting to say 20x2.3, maybe theyre running beefier than i remember.
With the gearing i understand the rations are both about 2.7:1 or vice versa 1:2.7? but yeah i understand the math, i totally forgot the math on that, i think i was running a 16:44 but i have to double check, i like the idea of having a smaller sprocket, both aesthetically as well as logistically, just today i was moving my bike in the garage before i left to work and had a sprocket shaped grease mark on my pants, a smaller sprocket would probably help that.
