Default Re: Looking for a product, 26" cruiser rear wheel with sprocket (no rag joint)

I have a 700 C wheel with a flip/flop hub- fixed gear on one side freewheel on the other-

I think it's one of the best solutions available- the hub is high flange- the motor sprocket has six inner holes- like the disk brake configuration- many newer sprokets have both drillings- for the rag and for the disk brake.

the diameter of the motor sprocket fits the flange on the hub exactly, but is not threaded or locked
- then all that was needed was to drill the high flange hub- and the alloy drills easily-

just six smaller length 10mm bolts and nuts- the lightest setup out there!

of course you have to have handbrakes and you'd have to build it 26". A longer BMX handbrake works sometimes and is not expensive- give me good handbrakes anyday!

but have a dual lever!
