    Hey weekend,

    You'll have to follow the link at the right...Manic Mechanic...Then click on sprocket adapter & sprocket on the left.

    This will take you to the order page for the adapters & sprockets. Follow the directions regarding ordering.

    I don't have the hub size for your bike...you're going to have to measure it accurately and fill in the hub size dialog box at the bottom left of the page.

    If you have any problems ordering, let me know.

    Jim

    Jim do you charge the same for a 26 inch hub as you do for a 1.50".I would love to see the piece of stock you start with.WKNFUN you need the size of the center hub where the adapter clamps. Go to manic mechanic in the upper right of this page,it will show you how to measure. HD

    I just called Manic Mechanic. It's been 15 days since I placed my order. They said they are shipping out another batch of orders in 4 days. I asked if my order would be in that lot. She just said, "I don't know". So if I'm 'lucky' I'll get my order 22 or 24 days after placing it.

    I guess I'm a little annoyed with this time frame because;
    1. It's my first bike build and I'm excited to get it running
    2. I ordered the adapter and sprocket to save me the time and headache of installing the supplied parts. (definately not saving me time)
    3. site says allow 2 weeks (should say 3 to 4 weeks)

    I ordered one about the same time (just over two weeks ago) and hopefully, I'm in that batch to be sent out too. I knew the production line was small and not all that personal when I ordered it so I'm not going to worry about how long it takes unless it goes a bit over a month, I'll ask then. As for now, I'm using the "rag joint" POS. I am hoping to have a smoother working drive system and I'm dropping a few teeth (going with a 40) to get a lower RPM at my normal speed. I see no real reason to not run your kit with the supplied sprocket UNLESS you can't get it to run true and not make horrible noises.

    Do your self a favor, get a decent chain too. The China junk chain is just as bad as the rag joint itself.

    Just a thought but it Manic Mechanic happens to peruse this thread again, it might be helpful to put what size the hubs you have listed are so that for instance I measure my hub and even though it's not a Shimano CB-110 if it's the same size I can just order that one.
    If I don't know what I'm talking about just tell me to shaddup and I'll crawl back into my hole. :D

    The Falcon CFE-10 measures 1.531 - 1.535"

    Thanks Jim,

    I was trying to say "I'm waiting too" (patiently) I hear nothing but good things about your products and will wait as long as needed to get one.

    Cam,

    The flanges range from 2.0" to 2.4". The standard sprocket adapter fits this range of flange diameters.

    The Occ hub has larger flange...so for hubs that have flanges larger than 2.4" I use an Occ blank and bore it to the hub size.

    The bolt circles are 3.125" for the standard adapter & 3.625" for the Occ.

    Jim
