Riveting is definitely better if installed properly

I was thinking I was going to have to take it some place to have it put on.

If I could borrow that I'd throw you a couple bones for letting me use it. Downside is you'd also have to teach me how to use it...

Thanks alot man!

100% the person doing the rivetting. Rivets are the only type of master link that are 100% as reliable and strong as the rest of the rivets. So they should break on par with every other link in the chain. 120 links and 120 chances and it always breaks there? Surely not installed properly.

Supersprox stealth kit definatly, they have aluminum core with steel teeth to keep it lightweight but lasts as long as a steel sprocket. I have one on my bike!

The supersprox aka Stealth sprockets were the lightest weight steel sprockets up until almost two years ago. Now the Driven and Vortex superlight steel rear sprockets are less weight, less money, and one piece so there is less to have an issue with. However, if you like the looks of the gold Stealth sprockets then go for it for sure. Just know that they are no longer the lightest weight rear sprocket anymore.

Also with a steel rear sprocket don't skimp on the chain as your chain kit will only last as long as it's weakest part. Get a long lasting chain to go with it.

Got my sprockets a couple days ago.. the quality is pretty good! I'm happy with them, although I haven't put the chain on nor ridden it. Just at a first glimpse.

I'm not so much interested in lightweight, there are more important thing I could do to save weight. As far as strength vs. Weight I'd have to go with strength. The stealth sprocket got pretty decent reviews about how strong it is and how long it lasts.

Overall I'm happy with the sprockets I got, and now only time will tell how long they'll last.

zvmx is a good chain. If you want a steel sprocket I would only recommend you shy away from Drive Systems as we have seen several have catastrophic failures. We haven't seen any other steel rear sprocket fail like that regardless of the brand.
