Cool Re: So let me get this straight.

Dig around on the website for the tutorials. You remove the coaster brake arm, mount the sprocket, then bend the coaster brake arm so it clears the bolt heads. I just took the arm and put a socket-set extension piece under it so it was lifted at an angle, then banged on it with a hammer until I had the right amount of bend. Took about 5 minutes. Mounting the sprocket on the wheel is harder because you need it to be very, very centered and evenly tightened to avoid it from wobbling at high speeds (makes the whole bike vibrate back and forth and you don't go as fast).

Good luck!
