Re: Worn Sprockets

Nice picture yes those are crooked teeth bro just like it said in the description.. horrible seller?? Fuk outta here.. I’m one of the fairest easiest people to work with and many can vouch for that..check my feedback.. and also,  before you told me you used 5 different chains and none worked.. I told you earlier and many told you here.. it’s the wrong chain.. and now all of a sudden you found a chain that fits?? Listen I’m not here for Childish games.. sorry you have remorse for spending 50$ on two used sprockets

I read the listing, I guess I just missed the picture with the destroyed teeth.  Either way one is worn out and is not a 6 out of ten.  The bigger issue is how you communicate to someone who just purchased something and had a concern.  You want to put me on blast by revealing yourself go ahead.  You have been a horrible seller to deal with and I will not be buying from you again.  Just being aggressive and defensive about your doubts of my concerns wasn't necessary.

Never seen this happen.


neither was any thing ells are government gave away simi free. that's why this country's broke and six trillion dollars in det already.

so what if they make the hole a little more deeper hole. ether way were screwed. but for now some are kinda happy.

Re: Worn Sprockets

Crooked means bent not worn out.  You can cuss at me all you want because you're just proving my point that you are difficult to deal with.  I admitted I was wrong, but you can't accept it and have to still act like a kid.  I would give one a 6 out of ten even with a few smashed teeth, but not the other one. I didn't call you out by name, you called yourself out so don't be pissed at me and try to shame me.

Re: Worn Sprockets

I mean, you can use a 1/8" chain on a 3/32" chainring albeit will wiggle around side/side and cause faster wear. Can't do a 3/32" chain on a 1/8" chainring which is what is shown.

Aside from that, every chainring shown in this topic so far are junk.

Chains stretch and contribute to wear like that, also the metallurgy of the chainring (6061 vs. 7075, etc.) and other factors like chainline, chain tension, physical design of the chain model, etc.

Chains are way less expensive than chainrings, don't know why more people don't change out chains more often.

I swap out my chains after I need to adjust the tension three times.Micro gearing is hard on the drivetrain.

Anytime I buy a sprocket I look closely at the tooth condition. If not visible I ask for more pics. If someone says 6/10 I’ll take a close look to see what the 4 lost points are from.

Re: Worn Sprockets

Everyone had a rough day. If you're not one of them it's bad to speak up about that.

The sprocket may be in poor condition. There's no debate about that. If it's usable to one person, it's going to be higher than 5. Circumstances are different for everyone with parts. It's not really a debate. If you can't use the part, stop fussing and just try to work it out. I have parts I can't use that are brand new. It happens. People aren't going to give you the answers to life when you demand it. It's just how the world is. If it sucks, just let it go. Your life will improve.
