Should have been read in your best Cliff Claven voice...
+1 on changing the sprocket when you change the chain; otherwise you risk damaging the new chain...so I have heard.

Should we make that both sprockets? Or does the counter sprocket wear at such a decreased rate that it is fielders choice. And how does that counter sprocket tooth count factor into the equation since the smaller ones seem to accelerate wear.....

I'm just a bit ADHD.......

Welcome to the neighborhood. Sounds like a fun ride. Don't let the big talk scare you off, these are all pretty decent guys.

Not much, as long as she can come too. But, then I haven't got my daughter a bike yet, so what would she do?

Crud, I guess we will just stick to riding skyline to the snowline then going for ice cream.
