Re: Sprocket help
The 6 mm is more universal with spoke count but the 8 mm looks more beefy. But the 6 mm is plenty strong.
It's best to get a 36 spoke wheel. 9 hole sprocket goes into 36. No spokes get in the way. Now with a 6 mm you can get away with installing a 32 spoke wheel to your sprocket. That extra 2 mm adds up.
Installing an 8 mm sprocket to a 32 spoke rim is a headache.
