WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

I'm looking for a larger than stock motobecane 50v rear sprocket. I have a 54, and i was hoping to find something in the range of 58-60.

Anybody got anything?

Re: WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

you have to count the teeth.

?!

Re: WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

why the surprise and alarm? I have interesting and valid reasons to raise my gearing above stock. In all ties in to my philosophy of removing weights from the variator. I'm thinking of going down to one.

sorry bret. I have a 56 on the bike that i ride, a spare 54 and a spare 40.

Re: WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

Maybe I should look ito what size front sprocket i have and what is available.

Re: WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

so what is this theory of yours??

i am interested..i dropped from the stock size to a stock 40t ..which dropped the tooth count about 12...and i see no differance in speed...

I guess I would just be surprised if you could actually find one.

The stock sprocket is the biggest one I have ever seen

Re: WTB: Big Motobecane Sprocket

What about getting a 16" rim.

That might be easier.

ive noticed a slight increase in speed from having the bigger sprocket, but it could also be from the brand new belt i put on
