Primary drive brand rear sprocket- 2300 miles- TOAST
So 2300 miles ago, I replaced a worn out rear sprocket with a new one from Rocky Mountain, primary drive brand. Now half the teeth are busted off, and the rest look ready to go too. WTF? Now I didn't change the chain out at the time, since it didn't seem to need it. And I'll readily admit that I ride aggressively commuting back and forth to work in heavy traffic. But still! Worn out between oil changes? When I install my new rear tire this week, I'll be putting on a new chain and both sprockets. Going with Sunstar sprockets this time, hopefully they last longer.
So is this the kind of life span I can expect with my style of riding or is it just what I get for going with cheap parts? Maybe it was just a fluke? What do you think?
