    Is it possible to buy a sprocket without holes? I'm going to mount it on the disk mount and I don't think I have to have an adapter for any other reason so why not eliminate it by drilling proper holes?

    Check out Azbills threads. I bought a wheel from him that is set up that way. It appears that he took a regular sprocket and drilled it to match the holes on the disc brake rotor and cut the center out. PM Azbill for more info.

    all I did was cut the 9 hole pattern from hole to hole with a grinder
    then centered the rotor (160mm) on the sprocket and marked the holes
    I found the disc mount was to far out and wouldn't line up with engine sprocket
    it is spaced closer to spokes with 2 nuts (I used washers until I got the spacing figured out)

    How could I go about drilling the middle hole of a sprocket for a wider diameter?
