Standard or Widebase single speed sprocket on Ti freehub ?

Postby W00DENT0P » Sat Oct 06, 2012 17:28 pm

Is it worth going for a widebase single speed sprocket or just a standard (DX type) sprocket on a Ti freehub body (Hope Bulb) ?

Cheers

Cheers, i was thinking a widebase one would be better, but the standard ones seem a bit easier (and cheaper) to get hold of, you (or anyone) used a standard width sprocket on a Ti freehub ?
Anyone able to track down a widebase 20t sprocket (thats not a £20 Surly one!)

Cheers, they only seem to go upto a 19t tho. Might just fit the steel freehub and run a standard DX type.

Thanks for your help.
