38, is more reliable, smoother. last longer. gets in the way


25. doesnt get in the way on certain grinds\ stalls weight i guess. wears out faster.

25 tooth would be WAY to easy.
38 is about normal
use the 38

for a 25 you would need a somewhere around a 9 tooth rear cog(which you can only get with a cassette hub). so if you want to run a small sprocket up front(comfortably) you will need a new hub or wheel. that advantage of using these smaller gearings are looks, weight, and its more out of the way when riding. look at the tech tips video on the home page about gearing, it should help you out.

oh yeah. if you get a new sprocket then you have to change your back hub gearing. if you do change anything. li would suggest 28\10

haha dude, if anything you should either run a 25/9 or a 27/9. like the smaller the gearing the high acceleration you will have but less top speed, and the bigger the gearin, the smaller acceleration but you could go pretty fast. i run a 25/9 and i can go really fast so im staying at it. dont go too big dude, people will mess with you if you do, i can guarantee it, cus i make fun of people with big sprockets haha

for a 25t sprocket you need a 9t driver, witch means a new hub 4 you. i would go wit a 38t sprocket. even though i would much rather be using a 25t. a 38t would be cheaper in your case and a lot less asembly
