Is a smaller or bigger sprocket faster?
A bigger rear sprocket/ smaller front sprocket will give you an increase in acceleration but decrease your top speed. A smaller rear sprocket/bigger front sprocket will reduce you acceleration but increase the top speed.
What size is a bike sprocket?
Most common sprocket size today is 25T or 28T with 23,7mm bore. There are two basic sprocket types – bolt drive and spline drive. Bolt drive sprocket is attached to the crank arm with a bolt. Spline drive sprocket is placed straight onto the 48-spline spindle and usually lasts longer.
Which sprocket turns faster?
For more bottom end and faster acceleration, use a small countershaft/front sprocket or large rear sprocket. For every 1 tooth that you change on the front sprocket is like changing 3 to 4 teeth on the rear (and that’s true for higher gearing ratios, too).
What does a smaller back sprocket do?
Substituting a larger front or smaller rear sprocket lowers the ratio (sometimes called “taller” gearing), resulting in more speed for a given engine rpm. Likewise, a smaller front or larger rear sprocket gives less speed for a given rpm (“shorter” gearing).

What size sprockets do I need for a cassette?
Cassettes with 9 sprockets have tighter sprocket spacing (each at 4.34 mm) as well as narrower sprockets (1.78 mm). Campagnolo uses 4.55 mm spacing and 1.75 mm width. Tighter and narrower.
