mtbtools 38tooth rear sprocket update 1x10

mtbtools 38tooth rear sprocket update 1x10

You may remember my post about "The year of the upgrade." Well I've recently managed to rack up a good few miles on this rear sprocket and I'm impressed, it has to be one of the cheapest upgrades I've fitted to a bike that's made one of the biggest improvements to my enjoyment on the trail. What am I on about? Well to recap "The idea is a simple one, switch out some sprockets on the rear cassette and add a larger one. Giving you a wider range. and adding a big climbing gear to the rear cassette to help you over the top of that massive hill." 

This particular sprocket was brought from mtb tools and its a great upgrade to any ones rear cassette. Especially if you're struggling to climb up. 

Installation Couldn't be simpler and can be done at home. All you'll need to install the sprocket is a Chain whip, cassette tool and screw driver for adjusting the B-limit screw on the derailer. 

 Remove your standard cassette using your chain whip and cassette tool. Slide on your new sprocket.
