Will going up one tooth on the rear sprocket make enough difference?
Anybody gone up a tooth on the rear and then wished thay had bought a 52 tooth instead?

One tooth down on the front sprocket is about 7.8%, or the same as about 4 teeth on the rear sprocket. More significant, and cheaper/easier to try.
My bike came to me with 14/52, but I dropped it to 13/52 because I do a lot of slow rocky tight trail stuff.

I'm gonna give the cheaper option of a 13 tooth front a try first, then if that feels too low I'll think about changing the rear.
