    $6 is definitely cheap fro a front sprocket. They normally go for around 3 times that much.

    Um yeah.... I really only posted 'cause they were on sale for @ $6. I don't care about the lightening, just thought it wasn't a bad deal.

    Zinc is silver. Think galvanizing.

    It seems to me that any weight you could save off a front sprocket would be so negligible that it would have no effect. Are any of us riding these machines to the very limit of their capabilities that a few ounces would have an impact? I think you could probably take some EX Lax before a ride and reduce about as much weight.


    Make that, a few hours before a ride...



    OK, take the EX Lax the day before, purge yourself, then go riding.

    If those were really good, hardened tool steel, they wouldn't need that crappy cadmium plating to keep them from rusting.

    Every little bit helps .... and adds up.
