I strongly recommend a 28 tooth sprocket over a 25 tooth. I recently switched over to 28t and i'm loving. A lot faster to get places but still feels good at low speeds. So much more convenient. Dunno why 28t isn't standard. Yet...

I would name is something using foreign languages. Like latin or greek. Like subrosa, meaning under the rose, meaning secrecy. I think that's really cool.

Try not to go too hard on the christian image, it might make people think the product isn't "cool". You have to make parts other brands don't make. I haven't seen a brand that sells cheap and expensive stuff at the same time. So you could do that. Be ... more »
