If the total number of teeth decreases enough to add more slack than you can take up in your horizontal dropouts, then yes. @nsn

@nsn like the answer says: by swapping the chainring and cog for differently sized new parts (i.e., with different numbers of teeth). see this question about gear ratios: bicycles.stackexchange.com/questions/13191/…

Ramps for stunts? What do you mean by speed vs strength? In my opinion, you have to be pretty strong to go fast.

Of course. My comment wasn't meant to be comprehensive. Just a quick comment with a link to some nice pictures. @ChrisH

I know the euro lights have this. I have a euro light! That's why I provided the link to the lights with which I have the most experience. (@ChrisH)

This design feature usually comes from the mirror and orientation of the LED, so it's hard to imagine meaningfully retrofitting a light. In particular, Busch & Muller lights are very good with this: peterwhitecycles.com/b&m-hl.asp

@Blam so is it even necessary then? Not sure that stuff even needs to soak for more than a few minutes.

comment Is an old mtb with replaced gear safe to buy?
Which bike is it? You said it has good reviews online, but don't link to any of them. It's hard to give an assessment with so little information.
