A rear sprocket on those five spoke mag wheels. I have been thinking about getting one for my bike. After breaking out those spokes the thick ole mag spokes look good but what would a nine hole sprocket do on them I wonder.

couple things to consider.
1> you have to bend your frame to accommodate the rim. what they are using is a hydraulic brake mount on the rim so it will be wider
2. real small screws and only 6 of them on the mount. also your sprockets will have to be drilled to work with it

You could use 26" Tuff Wheels...(they are 6-stars) with a standard hand brake; & there's a guy on ebay that sells rear sprockets, (says he can machine em any way you want.)

Too much trouble for me. I just want to bolt something on and go. I'm not into heavy modifications. I might try a mag wheel if one comes alone cheap enough.
