thanks man. It took me awhile to find that red chainring. Luckily, it's the right size so my gear ratio should be good (25-11).

will do. the axle stub comes in tomorrow so i'll go over to work and install it. I can really only ride it at my store or in the icy street. this week is supposed to be warmer so hopefully some of the snow will melt.

25-9 is standard. It will spin out a little quicker, but should not be too bad. :)

First Ride

I finally got the axle stub so I got to ride my bike for the first time today. (this is my first dj/urban bike) From what I can tell, this bike is super fun. I can manual it fairly well and jump pretty well too. So far, the 25-11 ratio actually seems pretty good so i don't think ill get a 9t cog anytime soon. I'm really happy with my bike so far. Just wondering, how should I have the rebound and compression set on the fork?
