Default Re: The Land of Entrapment

I have changed many a crankset from a 20" kids bike for the shorter pedal throw. In a single speed I like a full sized chain ring on a short crank set. Well if it is going to be motorized. The gears are pretty much a waste on a motor bike unless you are going with pablo's jack shaft kit. That's another story altogether.

Anyway welcome and the conversion to a one speed is no more than tossing the derailleur and putting the chain onto a couple of the sprockets. You don't really have to change the wheel or anything. Just choose two sprockets (front and rear) that line up. Do you need new brakes or just the pads. I bought ten pads for like five bucks on ebay.

Anyway welcome aboard glad to have you here..
