I just ordered a plain steel 16T front sprocket. I chose plain steel because I see rubber as a potential failure point.

At the expense of harsher shifts I imagine.

Your thoughts?

I installed the 16T yesterday and it was really easy. Makes 1st gear a bit more usable and 6th gear at 70mph is about 300rpm less.

Overall, I think it works perfectly, and I don't feel the need to go to a 17T (yet)
