i was just wondering why small sprockets?? do you buy them for performance or looks...cuz like every one has them?? ooo and i need help on a double peg grind and how to wallride?

smaller sprockets look better and save weight, and are also stronger and dont get in the way if you grind, especially for a righty grinder with right side drive

as for double pegs, just hop and force yourself over the way you grind, and just land front peg and back peg on, then just hop off, there really easy when you get the hang of them

and wallriding .. well if your right foot forward, do them on the right side of your bike, if your left foot forward, on the left of your bike, and just get some speed and take off from the lip of the wallride, and i turn my bars to the left a little to ride the wall better, but if your left foot forward then turn them a little to the right i guess, and lean yourself away from the wall, and your bike towards the wall, and to land them, just level yourself out again, once again, there really easy once you get the hang of them

smaller sprockets also don't bash when you do tricks like stalls an disaters.

just keep your foot on, you probably take it off cause your unsure if you can do it, just go at it with confidence

and if that doesnt work, duct tape your foot on the pedal

Mainly because they save weight and you can drop in and i can't wallride or double peg grind so i can't give you any tips

i taped my foot to my pedal when i used to run pegs. i tried to double peg on my quarterpipe but when i went to take my foot off it was stuck in place...so i pulled my whole bike and ate shit into the back railing of my ramp. pretty awesome...

duct taping my feet when i three is a good idea. i can sometimes land them but normally my foot comes off around a 270. good idea...

about the double pegs, i just learned feebles first, there alot easier cause if you just hop ur front wheel on the backs peg almost automatically goes on, then once you get used to the feel of grinding and a little bike control u learn all the other grinds

throw bars all day

(oh and in case you were wondering 24.5")

Yer i mainly buy 25t spockets because there smaller and stronger becaue i love doing stalls and disarsters. if ya buying a 25t get the oddyssey vermont its about $45 on danscomp defenitly worth it. there unbreakable

Yo i like everyones comments about taping your feet to the pedals. Im trying to learn how to ride clipless pedals (they actually clip in though) for racing season, so i put em on my strret bike just to get used to them. it is so scary not being able to just jump off if you want lol. oh and small sprokets are just freakin awesome duh.

Dude I Totally Want That

3/1/2008 9:25 PM

because we live in a world where this generation and future generations want light bikes so small sprockets eqaul less weight and we all arent going to be like sean burns or caleb rucker and ride street and do bonedeth shit so 44t are pretty much going extinct

|

3/1/2008 10:54 PM

i tryed taping my foot for about 30 minutes but i busted my ass so many times

|

stringer, lighter and dont get caught on copings.
evryone is only getting them now because of the cassette driver. making a 9-10tooth freewheel would have been pointless. the bearing would have been so small that they would be no point in having bearings at all.

riding street witth a big sprocket blows. you break chains like daily. i dont think people not riding street has anything to do with ridng small sprockets. bottom line is that its unnecessary to run a 44-16 when you can run a 25-9 and have a practically identical gear ratio while saving weight at the same time.

all about gear ratio easyer to pedal go farther with less crank rotations
