    Hi
    I'd just like to know if anyone knows of any sites (or people) that are selling rear wheels with BUILT-IN motor sprockets, not rag joint sprockets. and preferably not clamp on type either. I own one, but my rear wheel spokes got warped by the chain falling off the sprocket and eating them up :(
    really really would like a good replacement and not a downgrade.
    a freewheel would be fine, no need for a coaster brake seizing up on me unexpectedly (already have caliper brakes). Also if they sell them with a 6-speed cassette already attached that would be grrreat, and save me alotta time =)
    So, back to the question. Anyone know of some 26" rear wheels being sold with built in/pre-mounted motor-side sprockets? (That Don't cost $150+)
    Id be happy with buying a used one as well.

    Andy at Kings makes high quality sprockets that bolt directly on to disc brake hubs.
    Here's a link... King Sales and Service

    you should figure out why your dropping your chain before you go buy something.

    I have to agree. It won't make any difference how the sprocket is attached to the rear hub if you have chain tension or alignment problems. In fact you'll be wasting your money.

    I ran that hub for two days before the band brake ate itself! Then had to mod for disk now it rocks...

    http://db.tt/hn4ha0M after (sorry crap photo )
    The only thing is now the rear wheel needs to just slightly of center,my fault messure twice right...
