36t sprocket

I haven't ridden my street/trails bike for a good 5 years or so, when I broke the freewheel on it and never got around to getting a new one. At the time I was riding a kmc 415h chain with the original Kink sprocket (heavy shit) with a 44-16 gear ratio. Since I'm getting back into it and getting a new freewheel any way I figured I'd use the opportunity to lighten up a bit and go as small as I gather I'm able to on my classic Odyssey Hazzard f/f hubs, 36-13.
So here's the problem: there aren't really a lot of options when it comes to 36t sprockets. As far as I can tell there's a Primo Analog and some company called Rennen BMX plus a few others. Basically, I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on any of those or possibly has another suggestion on what to keep an eye out for.

The common gear for trails is about 28/30t to 9t in rear. 25\9 for street.

I'm not trying to go with some kind of different gearing here. I like what I like. In case you never heard of them before f/f stand for flip flop hub. Which means free wheels only. No cassettes. No cogs, or whatever it is that everyone seems to be using now. 13t is the lowest freewheel I can find and that's not even easy.

9t is really easy to find. If you want a 14mm flip flop, you're not going to find one easy. Or get a racing hub with 3/8 dropouts. But f I were you, I'd suck it up and get a cassette.

Tree Bicycle Company is very well known for some of the best sprockets and they make 36ts. I dont know if any mail orders have them, but my local park (and Tree Headquarters) has a few of them.

I was hoping to not have to spend hundreds of dollars getting new hubs.

Those sprockets sound pretty good. Thanks, guys. I'll have to check them out.

Oh, cool. I'll have to check those 2 out.

What's this spline drive business? Can you adapt a bolt drive crank to one of these sprockets?

Spline drive only works with 48spline cranks. as long as there 48splines doesn't matter if they are blot drive or not.

Awesome. Thanks for the help, everyone. Anyone know what they call the original Profile cranks these days? I seem to remember them having splines all around them, so I might be in good shape with that.

I know the 20" Huffy Rock-its and huffy Sea stars come with 36t sprocketscheerful

Imperial.

*Scratch that. i can't read. It's what Dave said. For some reason I read 'sprocket' instead of cranks.

Profile, Tree, and Rennen all make pretty decent 36T sprockets. Big sprockets are rad. As for the cranks, I think they just call them Profile BMX cranks. The Profile GDH cranks are pretty sweet too.

Yeah they look pretty good. I think I'm leaning towards them now that I know I can get the spline drive sprockets. Good thing I didn't cheap out back in the day and get the Poverty 3-pc. Haha

Hells yeah dude. Strongest sprocket available and has lifetime warranty. Youre set.
