Default Re: Reducing Vibrations at High Speeds.

Not enough can be said for a bigger gear (smaller sprocket) on the back- my 36 above has been an alloy 34 from Kings for some time- the less the motor is screaming at cruising speeds, the much less vibration there is.

Another improvement since my post on this thread is a 415 TRIKE/INDUSTRIAL chain- at half the weight- but the same width and pitch otherwise- the smaller plates give a very noticibly smoother roll- both peddalling and for the motor drive- highly recommended change under $15 delivered.
