Default Re: First Gen shift kits

I dunno if I'd go through the effort of trying to replicate the SBP shift kit exactly, if you've fabrication skills & the tools necessary to do that - you may be far better served to design your own, specifically around what you want & for your build.

While I do like the shift kit, the only reason I purchased one was not having to fabricate it - there's a bunch of folks that have made their own, simpler versions (try "jackshaft" w/our google custom search). There's almost limitless potential in design, while obv it won't work w/a standard bicycle (a bottom bracket usually has a pedal crank in it lol), here's a coupla pics of the jackshaft on my taddy project using a low cost BMX freewheel, as an example;
