Yeah definitlely upgrade mate, the gearing ive found with t-birds and t-vees is very light so gapping and blunts are harder to do at a higher level so upgradeing to maybe a 18:12 ratio will definitly help you become a better rider. Also buy a decent freewheel which good catchpoint so it makes you put more power into the pedalstroke.

Freewheels such as the:





ENO white industries

these are the ones to go for - depending on your budget

Im currently running Tensile cranks with a try-all freewheel and felt theyre quite good.

Freewheel wise i'd go for the ENO every time. I've heard stories about tensiles, montys and try-all freewheels not lasting at all in some cases. But never heard anything bad about ENO's. So if you can stretch to buy one of them it's a very good invetment.

As for cranks, the echo / zoo etc cranks seem to be the best out there at the mo. (Y)

i have, tensile freewheel, echo forged cranks and fixed 12T rear.

works nice

very nice infact

Thats what I've got and it has lasted for 8 months and I have never had to take the cranks off. The freewheel has never skipped and the bearings are still perfectly tensioned.
