It should do yes :001:

Unfortunately, it won't register as any different on the speedo :003:
I've removed the Cateye cycle computer, it was only held on with zip ties and gaffa tape  :008:

Top speed will be higher with the 15T sprocket.
It doesn't pull quite as hard in the higher gears, you need to use the lower gears more now, but that's to be expected.

So what about stretching out to a 16t front sprocket? Or would that be to much. Im just thinking lower revs all over oncreasing fuel economy.

I've used the 15T for a month now, and am happy with it.
There have been a few instances where I've needed to change down to get decent acceleration, which never happened with the 14T

I think the bike would pull a 16T, but it might be a little to much, and the speedo / mile counter would be that much further out again

The only other thing I've noticed is increased chain noise. The original sprocket, has what i think is a rubber damper built into it, which the replacement hasn't

Update :

Ridden the bike into work today. The most noticeable difference is in 1st gear. On standard gearing I found you need to change up into 2nd almost immediately. With the new ratio, 1st is a much more useable gear.

Well its one way of keeping down the miles on your bike! Are you gonna make any further adjustments?

 A downside is that the mile counter is now under reading. My commute is normally 17 miles, today the same route is only 16 miles !
I guess the mile counter works from a combination of the gear selected and the speed sensor. As I've raised the gearing, the counter is now getting altered messages - tho judging from the speed tests I did, it might be more accurate now than before !

I'll keep the updates coming :002:
