Mine uses the cb-110 adaapter. Others have a smaller diameter. Read along in this thread and you will see the other cranbrook hub diameter then check if its the same size as the modus adapter also in this thread.

Im having problems mounting the ragmount sprocket:

a. rubber discs seem too thick
b. rubber discs and metal banana attachers dont all align up,
(hitting part of hub/ sprocket too)
c. sprocket brake bar seems like it will hit the bolt heads when installed.
(some posted no mod./bending of cb arm required)

1. (went to a machine shop, and he wanted $45.00 to $70.00 to increase the sprocket hole size on 2 sprockets. ---> At this point, that option is cost prohibitive, knowing you can get a adapter, sprocket for $50.00 from PIRATE)

2.PIRATE is out of really does sound too painfully familiar.
--->JIIIIIIM! get your product out to Justin!

I've decided to either not reinstall dust cap,OR install it if it fits. (i dont want to grind down the dust cap.)

Im getting a little bit frazzled.

Sprocket concave or convex side out, whatever works.

Can anyone share several detailed PICS please of installed sprocket? and go over it with me?

I feel so inept, so stupid right now.

The instructions say 2 hours total build time - UNREAL...
I spent 4 "dry fitting"sprocket and I didn't even install a single thing!!! (not to mention the dozens of hours online trying to research the build.)

Sorry if i'm ranting.

Thanks for all your help in advance Guys/Gals.
The rubber squashes quite a bit. It looks like its too thick at first but it wont be when youre done tightening it up. Is there a harbor freight near you? Do you have any access to compressed air? you can pick up a die grinder 1/4'' Rear Exhaust Air Die Grinder for @ $10 and a carbide burr
from sears for @ $30. You could look else where and probably find one cheaper. Use those to enlarge the center sprocket hole. I had my rag joint sprocket touching the spokes and concave towards the wheel like this " (| " looking at the assembly from the rear of the bike. The chain lined up nicely on my Cranny.
