Who makes a 525 49T rear sprocket?

Trying to go +1 or +2 in the rear, but I'm having a hard time finding one in a 525 pitch. I don't want a 520 conversion as I'm looking for long life.

Those are aluminum, right? I'm not really a huge fan of aluminum sprockets. I don't want to replace them once a year.

What are you running right now? I have the Pitbull sprockets and they are aluminum and they are lasting me a good while? Super Sprockets maybe?

Pitbull's are 520. I have stock on currently. I don't want to switch to a 520 conversion.

You can get steel sprockets from Vortex. I got a 525 steel rear sprocket and chain from them. Www.vortexreacing.com

On their website, they don't have the steel in 525 for the rear. Says "Rear sprocket not available for the selected bike & pitch". I'm not buying an aluminum Vortex. I've heard lots of negative things about them.

SuperSprox doesn't have anything either.

Is there a reason you just don't drop a tooth on the front?

I would assume JT has to make a 15t steel 525 sprocket

-1 up front is closer to +3 in the rear. I'm already close to redline in 6th just before braking on NJMP Thunderbolt, about 600RPM away, so I think that would push it too far.

I would run a 15/46 over the 16/49, that's a big cog in the back, and I have found keeping a 15 up front with rear between 44-47 have been sufficient for short (barber/Talladega gp) to long (road atl/roebling) tracks this year. Hopefully when I'm faster at road atl next year I'll need a 43.
