Default Re: New rider with custom chop

Sounds like a sweet idea. One note: Consider using a 7-speed setup. The reason I say this is that an 8-speed sprocket set uses a thinner (read: "weaker") Drive chain. Also, 8 gears, while sounding cooler than 7 is somewhat excessive, and probably wont give you much more driveability. At least not enough to justify the extra shifting. But hey, I might have no idea what I'm talking about. But i do know about the chain gauge thing for sure.
