    Quick Cog Question?

    I just bought a gusset SS kit for my urban rig. It comes with 16t and 18t cogs. Which is more practical for urban/DJ?
    Thanks alot

    if you want to go faster, use 16t.

    if you want more torque for same amount of pedal rotation, use 18t

    Try one. Try the other. Pick between them based on your own experience and preference.

    What size chainring are you running? I try to adhere to the 2:1 ratio.

    Assuming a 32 up front, a 16 is common for urban. (as mentioned, 2:1). 18 would be better if you were doing more climbing, more XC oriented.
