Re: Two items that could save your life
I'm all for adapters if you want to spend the money to make things easier, I just don't thinkbuilding the rag joint is all that hard, and it is perfectly adequate if done right. Mine is easily over 10k miles with nary a broken spoke or problem of any kind. Even after removing the stock 44tooth and replacing it with a 41tooth the kit rag joint has been dead solid reliable. I'm currently on my 6th or 7th tire, and 5th or 6th set of brake pads on the Pig...
Best of all, it doesn't cost $100 bucks.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
