im thinking about getting out of my eastern medusa lite sprocket 25t and go for a 27 or 28

and I have another question, my friend has 25/9 gearing too and my bike pedals really easy and his is harder.. is that because my sprocket is a lite? or maybe i counted wrong and my cog is a different size?

His bike's chain is probably really tight and yours is loose. The drivetrain can be smooth no matter what kind of sprocket, chain, or driver you have...of course, a smaller drivetrain won't stay smooth for as long.

Between 27 and 28? No, you wouldn't notice anything.

Depends what sprocket you're comparing. Really man, you won't notice it. It's not a big enough difference.

no its not. you going to a higer gear ratio. Thats harder to pedal. I have a 28/8 and its a pain in the ass. b/c it is a 3.5/1 gear ratio. do the math..

28/9 is dope. You will like it. Its not to hard to pedal, yet not too easy. You will get more top end speed, and fakie tricks will be hella easer. You will get used to it withend 3months at the most and I doubt you will wannt to go back to a 25/9.
28/9 Is what I run at home...
