i recently cased my bike and my front sproket is screwed. My current setup is 36/16. i was wondering how bad it could really be going down to a 30/16. is it really gonna tire me out or what?

36/16 is already low. 30/16 would be horrible. No speed at all. Just get a cheap rear wheel and a sprocket. Go 28/9.

it's not HORRIBLE, but it's definitely not fun. I ran that gearing for 4 or 5 months before getting a new back wheel and it was pretty bad but better than running 25/16 or something for sure. Still wouldn't recommend running it.

If you can find a deal like this which is a 25/9 conversion kit, then get that. It gives you the 25t sprocket with a 9t rear wheel. I've heard some sketchy things about that site though so idk if I'd chance ordering off there though

I'm pretty sure he's being serious. 44/16 is pretty much the same as the standard 25/9, in fact it's actually a tiny bit lower.

My first ever BMX had 36/16, which was way to low. 30/16 would be even worse.

tiny bit lower, that just cannot but when i road 44/16 i could get up to 35-40 mph pedaling my heart out, can't even come close to that speed with 25 9
