Thumbs up Sprocket combo

Just wanted to say my bit...... After reading several past posts on sprocket set combos I decide to go 16/43. For me this was perfect and I am happy. Good advice all, thanks!

I am waiting for my 16/42 530 combo with new chain. Just wanted longevity and a little more pep w/o losing highway cruising speed. I'll post when it's on there...

Let me know how it works out for you. I have found that the 43 tooth allows me to use 6th now on the freeway, only having to downshift when traffic slows to my estimated speed of about 65. or my rpms drop to 3500. Like I said this is estamated, I have not purchased a speedohealer yet so..... right now its all black magic.
