well this is amazing. i bolted the sprocket on in about 2 minutes. i bought a 40 tooth sprocket from kings and it is not only beautiful but mounted nicely. here are some pictures. i am going to get some other sizes and its nice an hour job takes 3 minutes and no more bent spokes. plus you know you are all square. here are some pictures

Lucky dog... I had to grind off my disc brake hub mounts because the sprocket would've hit the frame. I've got a deep-dish rear end with 9-speed cassette, so the offset is pretty far left. In fact, even after grinding off the rotor mounts and spoke-mounting the sprocket in addition to engine left-tilting, there is noticeable "chain-walk" (is that a word?) between the offset engine and spoke sprockets. Only time will test long term durability in my case.

Would I have to call King's? I did not see it at there web site. I'm ordering some new wheels this weekend so I figured I should at least look into it before I get everything mounted up. If I'm going to do it, now is the time.

Pay pal is your friend in this situation. If you cant get a response from him, try through pay pal, they will help you, but you only have a certain amount of time to do a complaint.

if you are looking for 40tooth or 48 tooth, I recommend Manic Mechanic mmbikeparts.com ever since George took it over.. stuff ships fast, and he'll reply to you.

Someone should start making a clamp on, two piece hub adapter like the sprocket adapters but made to take a disc brake rotor. That way you could run a sprocket on the left, like Paul is doing, and a disc brake on the right.

The only problem I can see is that with the 6 bolt, ISO pattern most rotors use you might have spoke interference. I might experiment with this some day.

Some guys have adapted a disc brake rotor to mount with the sprocket but in every case I've seen they have to use a small, 36T sprocket to have enough clearance for the caliper to miss the chain. Or mount the caliper where it doesn't make full pad contact with the rotor.

A clamp on adapter would make putting disc brakes on either the front or rear wheel easy. You'd still need to fabricate a caliper bracket but that wouldn't be hard.
