Default Helpful Links From The Forum

I have been trawling the forums for a while now, and I have noticed that there are a number of links, PDF's, speed calculators, sprocket sizes etc that are quoted time and again. I thought I would create a thread that sort of pulled all these things together. Sort of like a one stop shop for info.
