> Changing sprocket sizes can help increase speed, or increase
your initial pick-up. Going with a larger front sprocket, and a
smaller sprocket, or one of the two, will increase your speed.
Going with a smaller front, or larger rear sprocket, or again,
one or the other, will increase your initial pick-up. You can
make these changes, but at the sacrifice of top end or pick-up.
You have to make the decision on what your main priority is. If
you have any additional questions, feel free to drop me a line.

Also be aware that you need enough initial pick-up to even consider a
smaller rear sprocket (or larger front or both). If it's not strong
enough it will never reach the desired top end speed. Arthur, friend of
mine, had this with his puch maxi. It hardly reached 40 kph anymore and
that with a terrible sprinttime.
