Also I wish that my bike had suspension but oh well I may go with a different bike once I take the damaged one back...if I can find my reciept!
Yeah brother, The sprocket install is the hardest part of the build, If you're using a rag joint. A sprocket adapter takes all the worry out of it. Then all you have to worry about is sprocket to sprocket alignment. I'll still use a rag joint on a customer bike if they wont spring for an adapter, just never again on any of my personal bikes.
