gears

The last 3 or 4 sets of Richmond gears i have installed have been terrible to get the correct pattern on. Matter of fact the last 2 sets never came up right on the cost side no matter what i did... The US gears were very nice and reminded me of the Richmond's when they first came out...

I personally like the Precision gears. Given the 2 choices you have i would go with the US gears...
