TA600: 17 inch rear to 18 inch. Effects?
If I went front the standard 17 inch rear to an 18 inch rear, how would that affect the gearing?
I'm trying to think my way through it, and I think that for a given engine speed, on the same sprockets, the rear wheel would cover ever so slightly more ground with every revolution, like going to a smaller rear cog.
But, similarly to a smaller rear sprocket, would acceleration and torque suffer?
Am I right in my first assumption, and what is the answer to my question, please?
