Default Re: Which sprocket for highest top speed?

I'm 210 lbs & I use 40T sprockets on all of my personal bikes... It adds a little more top speed without losing too much bottom end power.

There are many skinny guys who use 36T (or smaller) sprockets who go real fast without losing too much bottom end... (But they couldn't pull it off it if they weighed more).

The ability to quickly build up speed & safely merge (& deal) with traffic is a very important thing to consider before installing a real small rear sprocket because you're only thinking of top speed!
