Default Re: unique jackshafted bmx/dual suspension drive idea

The Dax FD would be quite easy to convert to jackshaft/chain drive if the dimensions allow everything to align properly. Sick Bike Parts has a threaded FW adapter that fits a 5/8 shaft, I know you guys on the other side of the pond are metric and the counterpart is 15mm. Daxes might be 15mm not sure. Anyway using the adapter would get you a second freewheel in place pretty easily for the drive side. You will have to work around any bearing differences. The 5/8x1 3/8 bearing will fit in the 15mm bearings place but will be slightly loose on the hole.Down side is no engine braking. If hills factor in get some good brakes, you will be using them a lot!
