A GEAR WHEEL THAT IS SMALLER IN DIAMETER, AND THEREFORE WITH FEWER TEETH, WEARS FASTER
Owner of VA.MEC s.r.l.
Well done!

Since there are fewer teeth in engagement with the chain In a gear wheel that is smaller in diameter, the traction force is distributed with a greater load on each tooth, causing greater wear. Furthermore, by decreasing the radius between the tooth and the rotation axis of the gear wheel, the traction force on the teeth increases, with the same torque delivered to the wheels.

INCORRECT!
