it seems 99% of the sprocket discussion is about going faster. i want the opposite, i need to be able to climb. my first gear is very high, as in it's difficult to even start out if you're not on level ground. i have an Ecotric 26" fat tire with 42 and 11-28 teeth sprockets. i'm trying to find replacement sprockets that would give me a much better ratio. i've seen shimano 11-34T replacement gears on ebay which seem to be the ticket. i'm told it's a freewheel. a 34 seems to be the something that would help. is there any smaller sprockets that could be put on the front? i can't seem to find any. to be honest i've considered getting rid of all the other gears and shifter and just having first gear. i only use it in the woods and the shifter "stuff" just grabs every stick, brush and grass clogging it up. does anyone know where i can get replacement sprockets?
