i'm not saying it's ideal. just that its not really a safety issue so much when you have such heavy duty quality wheels. a walmart bike with the custom sprocket or a worksman with a kit sprocket? to me the worksman seems like a safer ride.

eventually i will be getting a custom sprocket, but not for a little while, this project so far has cost me over $540 with another $20 or so to go, that's quite a bit for an 18 year old guy with out an official job. i make money but its all under the table ya know?
