I ride a lot of dirt and I have a 25/9 ratio now and I really have to pedal to get the speed to clear jumps. What would be better sizes? 28/? 30/? Thanks

Okay, first off, speed is only half of jumping, you must pump also. If you arent pumping it is a lot harder to go high. And yes, 28/9 is about right. I think 30/9 is a bit much for me right now, but in the future, im looking into it for sure lol

30 tooth is the best but you really have to pump the landings and pick up speed other than just cranking
