Default Re: help, chain, sprocket

I think the kit Chain/sprocket set up is junk. The chain is made of rubber and chewing gum and the sprocket mount to the spokes is acceptable at best. Sure it can be made to work but it is a major source of problems. Since I switched to bike chain a little break in (maybe 10 mi) and now it doesn't stretch and it weighs 1/3 of the kit chain. Also I can use a 1/2 link to make both my chains tensioned at the same time. I'm Also opting for rigid sprocket mount to hub on HD axles and HD spokes on HD wheels. The drive system is the only thing I've had repeated problems with.
