    Can I sandwich-mount a sprocket to these rims? (44- tooth)

    I know that these aren't exactly what you wanna be using for this kind of mount, but I'm too cheap to buy a disc-mounted one. It would be a shame to waste the beautiful freebies... LOL I love the garbage in a college town.

    Any possible way? At all???

    If not, does somebody know the absolute cheapest place to buy a disc brake mounted sprocket? Can I drill my stock one coming in the mail to fit a disc mount?

    You can drill the new one but you will need a drill press and good bits.
    Use your brake disk for a template.
    You can probably get a used non-disk rear wheel on craigslist for $30 or so.

    so that's a no-go on using a sandwich mount on these, because of the spoke pattern?

    Ok, the issue is NOT the disc brake. Only the front rim is of this type. The problem is regarding the Odd spoke pattern. There are four spokes, a break, four spokes, a break, etc.

    My opinion ,,,I would think that is a weaker wheel with that spoke pattern ,and would be hard pressed to make the kit sproket stay in place ,put a note on the college communication board ,wheels should be abundent,maybe even disk
