Try a picking up a smaller cog for your hub. (14t)

I prefer you get a 25 tooth sprocket and 9 tooth driver

It would be easier if you got an entire back wheel because changing hubs is tiring.

If you do install it yourself check this video on how to: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZF8RF-eD9-k

Its the most popular gearing.

Also its better to have a smaller sprocket because you can drop in on the quarter more easily.

Just check out your local bike shop or go on danscomp.com

Dude. This thread has been dead for two months. Check the dates.
