    BMP COMBO DRIVE MOUNTING KIT
    Does anyone know where I can get this kit or similar one? I think maybe it is no longer made, but I am looking for a similar chain drive kit. I read DAX has them but I cannot find them on the website.
    Thanks

    I'snt that just the sprocket that goes on the wheel? Thats not a problem. I just don't know where to get the rest of the kit on top. I guess I could modify a Dax friction drive somehow. I thought DAX sold chain drive's too, but I cannot find them on the website. Here's a bigger picture:

    Thanks. I saw the page there talking about the details.
    http://www.staton-inc.com/store/index.php?p=catalog&parent=109&pg=1
    Its weird they are not on the site with pictures or option to order them. I'll call them tomorrow. Even though they don't look as cool as a center mount engine bikes, for the money they seem like the most dependable type of set-up. Less parts to go wrong and good in wet weather unlike friction drives.

    Hi Crassius,
    You said this before also:
    " it looks just like the standard rag joint mount that all in frame kits use "

    That seems obvious to me. Is there something wrong about that?

    I was just trying to figure out where to get the top part with the engine and drive pulleys. I'm calling Dax now.

    The rag joint is the thing that will rip the spokes out of your wheel.

    Thanks, I'll see if Dax has something different than a rag joint.

    I've been using rag joints only, and they work fine when installed properly.

    Fact!


    I don't know if that exact model or brand is still available, but it does look like the staton friction drive mount. It wouldn't take much to modify it to be a simple chain drive.

    I called Dax and they do have chain drives . They look the same as friciton drives except instead of the roller, have a gear box and chain.
    Thank you Crassius. The guy that owns DAX said the same thing. All he uses is rag joints and he said they work just fine when properly installed. He even said they reinforce the spokes and make the wheel stronger when done properly.

    Thank also Agreen. I just saw you said they same thing about the rag joints being good. Another part I don't need to be paranoid about!
