Default Re: What Is The COOLEST bike you have ever seen?

There is only one way to go - Get a Shift Kit and be done with it.
I live in an area with seriously steep hills and have ordered and installed the optional 30 tooth dished chainwheel sprocket and 9 tooth jackshaft sprocket and also made a custom 9 speed cassette by breaking apart a Shimano 11-34T and a Shimano 12-36T together with a 19tooth individual hyperglide sprocket to give the following sprocket sizes.


I spent a whole day stripping down the cassette and rebuilding it with various sized sprockets till i found a combination that gives a useful spread of speed increase through the large sized gears and a tight set of gears (11-12-13-14) when road speed starts to meet aerodynamic resistance towing my trailer.
