I'm going to try the Drive Systems 520 Superlite Steel Rear Sprocket 47T; they come in 45-51 sizes:

Well, I just did 1200 miles of hard riding on CannonTrek in the U.P. with a full PD chain/sprocket set (steel sprockets, o-ring chain).

Then I went down and put another ~800 miles down in the smoky mountains.

Whole setup hasn't shown any signs of wear to this point.

PD sprockets and chains are all I use. Never had a problem with them.

I just installed the whole Primary Drive deal from RockyM, 13/48 steel sprockets, and Xring chain. All for $87 (with free 3day air shipping after I added a chain tool). Hard to beat that. Their customer service was very responsive and helpful on questions, etc.

Privacy is not something to play fast and loose with these days.

haha.. infact I usually don't but I was using irfanview and wanted to see if it worked.. I don't see the point in blurring it out really.. but for some reason every now and then I do it anyway.. haha

PS. I use Primary Drive 520 X-Chain and 47T sprocket..

Privacy...and because what gets posted on the internet can end up anywhere, and in this litigous society, possibly be used against you. Only prudent.

I'm sure it was a fluke, but I had a primary drive chain start seizing/binding up after about 300 miles on my XR400. I haven't bought one since, but I'm usually happy with Rocky Mountain for most stuff.

Who are you using for chains now?

My PD o-ring chain has one link that is getting tight already and I don't have all that many miles on it.
