Default Re: Is there a difference between the skyhawk and the starfire

nope. i mean, the torque's not bad, but my GT4's will pull off the line in a jiffy, while the GT5's just kinda lumber along, slowly building up speed.

i have to pedal a lot more to get them rolling along smoothly.

the firestone bike has a 34t with a MM adapter, as that was the largest sprocket i had, and i figured that would be alright for whoever wins this bike, but i think i'm gonna have to go larger. the GT5 just doesn't want to get the bike going. my GT4's woulda pulled that no prob.

top speed ain't bad, though. the bike kicks in eventually, about 20-ish, and takes off to about 40 nice and smooth.
