What would 25/8 gearing feel like with a 1.95 tire? 25/9 is a little too easy. anyone know how far back it moves the wheel or if you have to run a half link?

It'd be just a teeny bit further back than 25/9, I mean it is only one extra tooth. And as for the 1.95 tire along with 25/8 gearing, it is a bit faster and with the 1.95, you'll go pretty damn fast, just don't lowslide or you'll eat shit maybe, lol.

If 25/9 is too easy i would go up to 28/9 or 30/9

this. if you have some super expensive sprocket like a profile that is 65 see if a driver is cheaper then. go for the cheaper option

One tooth is a difference of .12 inches.

if you go higher on your sprocket you will go faster and have less stress on your chain.......im running 30 to 9 and loving it

I only will run 28/9 because i am a man and like to pedal hard and fast at everything and i need the speed. haha Im gonna probably go up to 30/9 if i feel man enough one of these days! haha

Be a man go 30-9.

8tooth drivers are renouned for blowing bearings and heaps of stress on the chain, plus they will wear down faster

I guess I'll just stick with what i got. needing to buy a rear hub, just bought a new 25t, so was just seeing if 8t was an option. im just gonna learn to pedal like a ninja
