Most others are similar except for the fact you can tell if they are not as strong as others. Look at the cut outs and it gives it away

Just asking for any personal preferences in which chainwheel works well with Monsters ?

That's a big ol' 44t, not many brands make that size any more. You could check out some mid school groups on Facebook, or check ebay. Don't get anything smaller, it'll feel horrible, unless you change your back wheel to a cassette

Nah, the wheel that came with it has a 13t cassette; I'll be keeping that and going down to the 36(same as how I have my Foster set up. I just wanna know if there are any personal preferences that work with Monster cranks

Ahhh, not the original rear wheel then? Same applies really. I'd assume the cranks have a 19mm axle, so any sprocket will fit. But no one makes 36t sprockets anymore, maybe profile? Or something second hand and midschool. I had a metal bikes 36t years ago, it was rad.

Oh no haha. The wheel that came with it is a King Pin rim/J-Tech cassette combo hehe. Probably gonna stick with it for now. Only thing is, the Monsters have the giant 8-spline setup, vs the more common small-spline setup so I suppose I'm also wondering if the amount of matching chainwheels are limited

You're talking about a racing setup right?

Measure the diameter of the axle. Pretty much every sprocket on the market is bored for a 24mm, with adapters for 22mm or 19mm. But, you'll struggle to find a new 36t sprocket

Yeah, not much choice though, and they wear out quick

I ain't worried about the diameter, I'm thinking about the spline difference

The diameter is what matters, number of splines is irrelevant.
