Good call, that is a hardcore trail. Tried to ride up it once a few years ago and it kicked me in the balls, had to turn back down hill. I can find the trail from the bottom but always have trouble finding that bitch from the top. I've been down it on a mnt bike years ago but was following someone.

Ordered a 48 tooth rear yesterday (stock is 42) and it already has a 16 on the front. 16/48 will be shuteye/bald mountain gearing, 17/48 will be fire road, 2 up, and commute to work gearing and 16/42 will be Death Valley and back gearing.

Current gearing (16/42) is too tall, shifting into 6th @ 70 it luggs... Cruises @ 80~85. Thats gonna git me tickets, so no bueno for commuting daily.

Why not just have 15/16/17 counter shaft sprockets to go with one rear? 46 or 47, it would be a whole lot easier to switch um out with the same result...
Changing the rear is a PIA.

I won't likely ever go back to the 42... With a little luck I'll have a 19/17 or 17/17 kit within the next six months and thats where the 42 will end up. And if I wanna keep up with JP on his DR I need goat gears to get the front wheel up.

And there is that whole school of thought that using smaller diameter front sprokects is a tighter turn radius for chains which is harder on them blah blah blah... Its just koolaide man just drink it.

Haha, I'm drinking some right now.

Less teeth = faster wear but I've been running a 13 front on the 525 forever and havnt noticed excessive chain wear. I think it's a myth......I got almost 6K miles out of the OEM 13 tooth counter sprocket. I'm on the third chain, I like to keep good chain and sprockets on it. It's not worth the risk of chain/sprocket failure considering the places we ride.

Luke, I canceled last night because I rode up to Grant Grove early yesterday for work.
The leg is much better, but not 100% yet.

I have taken my BMW up to Shuteye and down to Hite Cove. Not a mighty 950 but still a pig.
