    I have a Gary Fisher mountain bike all aluminum and some magnesium, I have a 1000watt bafang motor, I wanted to ask you about the front sproket how large should I go to still pedal normal and go as fast as I can.

      Hi Greg, are we talking about a 1kw Baffang hub or mid-drive?
      That’s a difficult question because it is also related to your riding style. If you want speed I would go over 38T, I got a 44t on my MTB and I am happy with that. On my second bike, I got a 48T and it gets quite heavy sometimes.
      Thanks for your message 😉
