Why would you go down on teeth on the front and rear sprockets? I'm wanting to go to 12/38 (drop 1 tooth on front, leave rear same) or 12/40 (drop 1 on front, add 2 on rear) to get more torque and pop front up easier. What happens by dropping 1 on front and dropping 2 on rear? I'm not being sarcastic, I really don't know what effect that has.

**** aluminum sprockets for trail riding; Al wears out MUCH quicker then steel sprockets - you are wasting your money in the long run.

Your wasting your money all around what are you gonna save a pound? For something that costs 20 bucks more and wears 3x as fast its not worth it to me

well im goin back to 20in tires and i want a little more top end cause 12 tooth with 20inch tires is gonna be a little low gearing for me so im gonna knock the rear down a couple to give me a little more top end with the 20's.

Gotcha, I didn't pay enough attention to your signature or I would have understood to begin with. I hadn't noticed that you already had a 12 on front.
