I'm curious what sprockets you're using when you race? Do you have just one setup or are you changing depending on the track? 18/43 is stock on the 2012 and I'm considering going to 18/45 (maybe even 18/46) for quicker acceleration but I'm a little nervous the change will make the bike more wheelie-prone, probably for no good reason though.
I'm using a 530 setup with 18/43, standard is 18/42 but I also have a 45t and a 19t that I can chop and change.

Cheers
Rob

I did t realise that there were 2 options the normal gloss ones and the Matt black. I love the look of the Matt ones.

Anyone else like the look of these?
