sprockets steal or alloy?

Post by captain caveman on Tue Oct 18, 2011 7:30 pm

what do you use and why?
Does your chain last longer with a steal or does a steal sprocket wear it out faster?

Steel everytime. And no, sprockets do not wear out chains. However, a knackered sprocket will accelerate the wear of the chain. Steel lasts much longer than ally, and judging by the state you've been known to let them get into should be a no brainer. Laughing
I used to get JT sprockets from B&C Express for the XR. Good sprockets and very reasonably priced.

Super sprox twice the price as a full steal one shep, some say they damage your chain?........have a look at a 150 bhp road bike.
The fact is! like super sprox advertise they last three times longer & a all steal sprocket cost the same as alloy.

No. A supersprox has an ally centre and steel teeth. Same longevity as steel but lighter. More Bling factor than anything else really. Oh and stupidy expensive

I thought supersrox were hardened steal hence why some people think they wear your chain faster.
And whats the best chain? Been using Renthal.
