I had to order new chain and sprockets, Tibo wore them out last season.

Like Roger says, go with lower gearing.
I would say the lowest you have..and be sure to have all your sprockets ready to change if it turns out to be two low..

Roger runs really short gears. I go for 15/46 and have been pretty-much good at every track. Shorter than that, the wheelbase is too short and I fight the bike.


I think the 1K is -1+2. I never changed it. have to hit both the straights in 2nd to get a drive.

You don't need to worry about me. I'm old, fat and slow........ did I mention I have a bone floating in the back of my neck? But I will still race :wink:

3 months ago I couldn't pee by myself... We've got a sportsmans cup, but what about the cripples cup? Tibo and roger helped me regear the bike and it makes a difference.
