I saw a picture of it , basically it's a sprocket that has a missing tooth in one spot....wtf? It said for slammed riders . So what does that have to do with anything.

You can slip a tightly slammed chain on it without breaking it because there is a gap in the teeth. I made one by accident before ahaha

Step One: Break/grind tooth off your current sprocket.
Step Two: Save $50 and keep your superior sprocket

If you have your rear end slammed, you can't push your wheel forward to take your chain off to get your wheel out. So if you didn't have a master link, you'd have to break the chain every time you'd need to take your wheel off.

with that missing tooth, you can pop the chain on & off much easier in that spot, but still keep your wheel slammed & not need a master link or if you have a half link.

Ohhhh. Who would ride their chain that tight. My wheel is basically slammed but my chain is just long enough for it to slip back slightly , but even then my chain is short enough to keep it from going back by much at all. My chain doesn't even hit my chainstays when its far back. I guess it's a smart thing but thats why I have a chain breaker !

So basically, it's a 26t sprocket missing a tooth. Maybe make a Minus One guard sprocket? haha

It seems like a normal sprocket is better

25T. The missing tooth does not affect the gear ratio in anyway. It just makes it easier to take chains off.
