Understanding Sprocket Size in BMX Riding
When it comes to BMX riding, the sprocket is an important component of the drivetrain. It’s the part of the bike that the chain wraps around and it’s connected to the crank arms. Sprockets come in a variety of sizes, ranging from small to large. The size of the sprocket has a significant impact on the performance of the bike and the riding experience.
Teeth Count and Gear Ratio
The most important factor to consider when it comes to sprocket size is the teeth count. A sprocket with a higher number of teeth will result in a higher gear ratio, meaning the bike will go faster with each pedal stroke. On the other hand, a sprocket with fewer teeth will have a lower gear ratio, resulting in less speed but more torque.
Bolt Pattern and Crank Compatibility
