Default Re: What kind of rear sprocket needed for a NuVinci hub with SBP shift kit?

An 18 tooth freewheel is what most people seem to like but it all depends on your riding, engine power etc. I think the 16 will work. Unless you are doing a lot of off road riding where a very low gear is required I think you will be fine.

One thing I think would be neat to try is using a fixed cog as was mentioned in the previous post. The front freewheel allows for this. It will also give the ability to bump start which with a standard derailleur and rear freewheel is not possible.
Design is easy, execution the hard part.
