Default my first build.

Well this is all new to me. Names John and I'm in Washington state. Ordered my kit online. Found this forum while waiting for it to arrive and this forum has helped out a lot. I origanly received this. Bike for free and it was in horrible shape. I just planned on making the bike rideable. Then I found a kit online for $139. I couldn't pass it up. My phone won't let me upload a pic of my bike but it is posted in my profile.

Default Re: my first build.

Get a manic mechanic hub, nothing beats that, or a disc brake rear hub and a sprocket that bolts to the disc hub. I think kings sprockets has them. The rag joint it comes with will move and never be totally true and flex under load risking a thrown chain, I threw a chain once going around thirty. It locked up my rear wheel and shredded my spokes and sanded my tire down to the tube. I was not fun! Good luck!
