    bmx hubs

    hey ive been having trouble with the rear hub om my haro sx 24 and ive been wanting to run smaller gears than the 41 18 on it now and ive got a bmx hub with a 8t driver on it so im wondering what size sprocket would work best with that on a cruiser or should i just get a new hub with a bigger driver and buy a bigger sprocket

    buy the hub a 11 tooth driver and get a 25 tooth sprocket and you'll be good to go for your curent gear ratio

    you'll be running some SUPER micro drive with that. 8t is typical of flatland and some street riders... and that is with 20" wheels.

    i think id go with a 23t sprocket
    ive never really run anything smaller than a 13t on the rear and i was wondering with that small of a sprocket can you still get good speed

    Yep, the ratio is what matters.

    23:8 is going to be a significantly harder ratio then your current one . As long as your legs can push it then i say go for it otherwise you will most likely end up going slower because you can not crank hard enough
