DK Professional

Something about a 44t sprocket just makes it boss.

That sprocket is the highlight of the bike.

I know nothing about race bikes except that they are insanely light. I sometimes ride the local race track on my freestyle bike. One time there was a kid there on a race bike that had a 140lbs rider weight limit and the thing was light as fuck. The dude let me have a go and I almost died on the first jump because the lightness of the bike threw me off.

Thanks guys. The sprocket was on my brother's race bike when he started racing and wound up getting it back from my friend who I bought the bike from. It's too nice to get rid of.

This frame is aluminum and weights like 3lbs 4oz. I tried to use lighter parts and can probably lighten up the bike a bit more with actual race wheels. It feels fast and can't wait to test her out tomorrow night at the track.
