Harder.

If you go up gears in front = harder, if you go down gears in back = harder. The bigger the difference between the two numbers the harder it is, visa versa.

harder to pedal, easier for life. you gain speed much easier and afer riding it for a few weeks you dont realize the difference really its great.

25 9... its standard no matter what size you ran in the past...

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves! It’s crazy!-Trey Jones

No prob man, I just took a good hard look at what was happening on a mountain bike of mine while changing gears to figure it out.
