Default Re: rear sprocket size?

you have your poll wrong. you have the torque backwards.
the correct answer is this:
smaller sprocket= less torque/slower acceleration/faster top speed
larger sprocket= more torque/faster acceleration/slower top speed

6" is around the size of a 36t sprocket i think

you will be traveling faster but slow when starting out , with less torque.
