My new 45-tooth rear sprocket for the SVS just arrived via FedEx. It’s one of those moments where a will of steel is required to keep working from home, as opposed to dropping everything to go put the sprocket on. Thankfully, I’m almost done with my task du jour, so I’ll be in the garage soon enough.
When I put on the last chain and sprocket kit, I decided to try a 46-tooth rear. I didn’t like it. At all. I tried to get used to it. I gave it a month — a month of commuting, of day trips, of twisties. When, after 30 days and 1000 miles, I still hated it, I gave up and ordered a 45-tooth rear.
I’m so looking forward to having my old gearing back. *bounce* I’m sorry, 45-tooth rear! I will never doubt again!
