    I have a Schwinn stingray chopper and the back wheel is 20". What sprocket size do I want use to achieve the most speed possible. I was thinking about a 32 tooth sprocket. But i didn't know if the wheel size would affect the speed.
    Thanks

    The wheel size does effect the speed. The smaller the wheel the smaller the sprocket that you use. But i don't know what size for you to use cause i have 26" wheels with a 44t sprocket. You can check the forum for others who have used smaller wheels and what sprocket they used.
