Up to 28 tooth is a great idea but there is a lot of spockets who could do the job so just pick one than you like.
I was riding an eclat spocket for years, but i was afraid for my chain when I had put 2 more pegs, so I had buy a stranger fullguard 28t a few months ago, it´s holding fine.

tree is always a safe bet for sprockets. Im running the sunday knox full guard and its been going good for over a year now. Most brands will be fine for sprockets, just dont get something with over the top gimmicky cut outs

My MDS is bending from sprocket stalls. Wouldn't really recommend it. Gonna try a MDS 2 or Subrosa Magnum next.

My MDS 25 tooth with full guards is doing FANTASTIC but thats useless information because they don't make it anymore. haha If they still made it, i wouldn't recommend it in 28 tooth because you need all the clearance in the world to clear the guard. but the 25 isn't too bad really. I like it.

I saw something about since the 28 tooth is a little bigger they bend easier, but then again i know a guy at wheelmill that literally sprocket stalls the spine with one and his is still good, maybe you're landing hard or something. Mine is straight as can be.

Sorry for threadjacking, but how do you know when a sprocket needs to be replaced?

I see the knob on the crank arm eats away at the sprocket making my cranks feel "loose" and not 100% responsive, almost like 90% responsive. When I try to pedal, it'll take a second for the sprocket to catch the crank arm.

But yeah, does this mean I need to replace the sprocket?
I can still ride with no major problems, so how do I know when it needs to be changed? Will it like snap in half or something eventually?

Not a bad idea to look into a new one.

tighten the fuck outta the bold and go ride till that shit crumbles into dust! my sprockets very very rarely comes loose, but last time i did, it snapped my allen key inset for my ratchet. Admittedly the allen bit was rusted to hell, but still, it was tight af and still needed that tiny extra and its fine.

True that, thanks for the advice. Can't hurt to add a new one.

Well then, at least I know I have plenty of time to buy a new one now, seeing as you were able to use yours down to the bone lol Thanks for the advice bro

Also look at the sprocket teeth. If they are starting to shark tooth.... look more like this---> /`( than this---> /```\ they are going to need to be replaced soon.

Keep in mind thought that your chain and driver typically wear together so it's not a bad idea to replace them all at once. Some times your driver won't wear as fast as they are generally made of chromoly so you can inspect it for wear, but for sure replace the chain and sprocket at the same time.

No, you're right. They dont hold up to sprocket chunks/stalls very well. I bent a 27t one and was only 150-160 pounds when I was riding it

I'm on the vital legit list!
