This. I can remember when we were all riding flip flop hubs that were only RHD and we would still grind and not bitch about it. Also OP you got two wheels for $40. Thats amazing even for just one wheel. And just get a DSG and run 4 pegs

I did straight up SPROCKET GRINDS back in the day. Slid down ledges on my chain, sprocket and back pedal.

Ahhh the good ole days.

Of course my chain was bigger and thicker then.

Bring back 45-16 gearing

It’s all bmx

But if we have any gearing even close to 36-13 there will be no room for a short backend And a huge tyre, we cant have that, fashion over a silky smooth ride right?

36/13? Why not add a little speed into the equation and lets roll 36/11
