So I bent another sprocket while grinding. Can anyone suggest me a good cheap brand/model that will hold up at least for a couple of months?

Get an Odyssey La Gardia... it's like 40-50 bucks but WAY worth it... it will probably last you a long time...

If you can find a cult member v2 mine is super solid, about 9mm thick, and made in USA out of 7075 aluminum. For $50 hell yeah.

Trees are always nice, but not cheap at all. I didn't really care for my primo solid. Its too heavy, and not that strong. It did look cool though. You pretty much get what you pay for. I did see a member sprocket on sale for like $35 though. That's a steal.

First, get a sprocket with a guard, then it's up to you, obviously full sprockets are stronger, also heavier, some like the look of it, but I think it's too much, I ride the same guard sprocket since years, I grind a lot on both side, and hit it on purpose for some stuffs, it's a 28t stranger full guard sprocket if that matters, plus when looking at it, it looks beefy because of the guard but the actual sprocket is pretty thin and it's enough.

I really don't think solid sprockets are stronger. The design matters a lot. Like the tree light is probably stronger, and an ounce lighter. Material definitely matters. Look for 7075 aluminum. Most people don't need a bash guard either. Depends on what side you grind on, and how much you grind. I got sick of denting and breaking stuff so I ride pegless now. I never hit my sprocket. I think guards are ugly too, but that's just my opinion.

I agree I've ran the La guardia for about a year and a half/ two years, maybe more, I've never had a issue.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

I agree, they are pretty cool. Use to always rock the original back in the 90's.

Right?! They should bring it back in modern sizing as a Nyquist signature part along with the Mega Nuke sprockets!

Tree.

I've had quite a few Tree sprockets over the years and have never had a problem with any of them. Best sprockets out in my opinion.

Currently running a Federal BBS though because it looks so damn good. No complaints about quality so far either.

S&m x man guard sprocket is really solid. I've been riding one for a little over a year and have bashed it and accidentally grinded it on stuff countless times and it is still running perfectly (the side that's down when I'm in position is grinded a little flat but obviously that's going to happen but it's still straight/flat no wobble and you can flip it over when it gets too low).

I bent/chipped a non guard sprocket and slightly bent a guard sprocket from another brand, not like taco'd or anything dramatic it's still runnable just wobbles (learning; been riding coming on two years grind both sides and weigh 225 pounds so my bike takes a lot of unintentional abuse). The s&m sprock also has the square style teeth which probably are stronger if you were to hit them.

Has anyone grinded through their chainstays? I have a habit of dragging them across rough cement and have gotten close on three frames and they were all great frames; it wasn't their fault. It was mine. Sometimes I wish I was one of those light springy flexible guys...but I can't complain, even though not landing violently is proving to be a considerable obstacle I am powerful, beauitiful and girthy. And I come in like a wrecking ball.

I agree on Tree, you get what you paid for. Never hud an issue with my old one. And it took some direct hits to everything. Toss a guard on it and maybe it's overkill but it's going to last forever. Tree I think still warranties sprockets too.

If you can locate a Kink OG, then you are set. They are seemingly never bent. A friend won one and finally stuck it on when he destroyed another sprocket. 2yrs and worst problems he has is a bent tooth now and then. And for awhile you can bend it back (teeth) with a wrench. Probably cheaper than a Tree if you locate one.

Found them on eBay this one is $40

Obviously not great if you bend sprockets, but I've been riding the prototype of this for a couple of months with no issues (prototype has narrower bolt hole spokes) and it's held up to being hit a few times during grinds. Shameless plug. They'll be released in just over a week. 7075 t6 alloy, 7.5mm thick. 28t only (maybe a very limited run of 27 and 30 in the future)


We'll be working on a nearly solid guarded sprocket soon too.

Sorry for plugging but at least it's on topic? :b

This is more of a "you get what you pay for" kind of thing. Everyone's just gonna name the sprocket they have/have ridden.
