okay, i'm still a newbie to bmx, so learning is taking it's toll on my bike. i didn't go all out when buying my current bike because i knew i was going to damage stuff as i learned. i am running a normal 3/32" chain and 44:16 gearing and only ride street. sprocket stalls are starting to take their toll on my flimsy ring so i was looking to upgrade to a thick ring and an oversized chain so i don't risk walking home every time i mess up an abubaca or stall on a spine. while i'm changing my drivetrain should i stick with 44:16 or should i go with compact drive (36:13 or 39:14)? i know brake clearance is an issue with compact but are there any other drawbacks to this setup? are smaller freewheels weaker?
