Hey i have been looking into a new sprocket cause i heard that if you get a higher tooth sprocket like from a 25t to a 28 tooth the pedaling will be harder so there for i can go faster is this true Just a quick question just wanted to make sure before i buy one Thx For all the help in advance. And Btw does anyone know any good single speed rear hubs Or reccomendations for ones.

if you do not change your cog(s) in the rear and get a bigger sprocket, yes what you say is true. pedaling will be more difficult but you will have a higher speed before spinning out.

singlespeed hubs depend on budget. here are some options from our product guide. you may be better off going with a pre-built wheel. by the time you get a hub, buy spokes and pay to build the wheel, the prices add up.
