    ^ Yup...!

    SP owner Bob achieved 44 (U.K.) mpg on a euro tour trip I never got much over 42 mpg on my euro trip.

    44 higher > 42, lol

    Therefore, a 2 tooth smaller rear spocket of the SP would account for his SP's slightly higher mpg figures.

    Is there any SP owners that can confirm this smaller rear sprocket. When I test rode an SP it didn't feel any different to standard one

    Fair Fair question.

    For clarity Standard Bike has 43 Tooth Rear Sprocket.

    So Therefore claim is that the SP has a 41t sprocket...

    We await SP owner answers here please.

    Just counted the teeth on the rear sprocket of my SP and definitely 43 teeth, attached photo also just shows the '43' obscured by the chain guard ring.
