Smile Bigger Cranks, Smaller Cogs

Good day PMTBers!

Ask ko lang kasi I recently bought a cheap built bike. Pansin ko lang medyo malaki 'yung crankset ko tapos medyo maliit kahit yung biggest ng 8-speed cogs ko, compare sa 8-speed cogs at crankset na nakita ko sa Vision 1.5 built bike. Does it in any way affect my performance? I'm planning to do trails na sana.

Thanks po in advance sa mga info nyo!

I'll all depend on you, if you have your legs and lungs train to withstand the trails we have.
If ever you have doubts you could try small trails like the one in Camp Aguinaldo, after that if you feel satisfied with you riding the bike try a harder trail. :)

basta sir, tandaan nyo wala sa pana yan, nasa indian..hehehe


pwede nyo din pala palitan yung cogs nyan may nabili ako dati meron 36T available sa mga maliit na bike shop around 200-400 pesos lang po.

Ride safe and have fun...

i agree with banj_bru... kahit mas mabigat ipedal yan kung kaya naman nang legs at lungs mo no problem...pero kung sa flats or road palang eh hirap ka na better upgrade or pag-practisan mo sya maigi

It would be best if you have the tooth numbers for comparison.

Typical Chain ring sizes are 44-32-22T.

Typical Cog/ Cassette sizes are 11-13-15-17-20-23-26-30-34.


Normally, the issue comes in when matatarik yung mga trails...and they tend to be extended. Gamit na gamit mo ang smallest Chain ring..at largest cassette.

But the difference I think may or may not be that significant to the rider. It depends.

I think the locally available MEGARANGE cogs have 34teeth on the largest cog. They only appear really large because the 2nd largest cogs are much smaller than the usual.

They're not that expensive though and would be a cheaper upgrade than replacing the crank if your existing cogs are smaller than 34teeth. They even come in Cassette and Threaded versions. I've checked them out in the low-end LBS since I was planning to try them on my "village bike" that's

Red face Re: Bigger Cranks, Smaller Cogs

Mga bossing, sorry for late reply. Hindi nagnotify sa akin itong thread anyway, 28T lang yung largest nung cogs ko, check ko pa later yung crankset. Kungsabagay, magpapalit na rin naman ako ng drivetrain, baka alivio na lang muna, short kasi sa budget.

Thanks sa mga info nyo mga sirs!

Pa-OT po. Sir anthrax, hindi po ako makapost ng reply sa trading section. Ano kaya problema sa account ko? Thanks!

(in behalf of sir anthrax) sir, hindi ka po talaga makapagpost ng reply sa trading section.... lagi new thread(ads) ang post dun... if you eyed some items there, contact the seller either by their information thats included (it should always be) in the ads or pm them.

am I right sir Anthrax?

ride safe bro!
