    I recently ordered and received a sprocket adapter and sprocket from Manic Mechanic (MM). I can't believe how nice it is. It is as beautiful as it is functional. I had a 32 spoke rim and thought I was out of luck. MM made this adapter for me and now I am back in business. It mounted up perfectly and the bike runs really well. I knew it would work out because of his great reputation on this forum. Thanks again MM for contributing so much to our hobby!

    I used one of these recently. Wish there were more parts like it available. I will be purchasing more of these in the future.

    Pirates sold out again...gotta get this figured out

    "Jim John here I've been "off the air" for some time now but would like to get back to work on my bike.

    Can I still order a motor mount and manifold from you directly?

    You have sold me the clutch lever and gaskets in the past.


    Thanks
    John

    While I think the adapter is great, the availability of sprockets and sizes sucks now. Pirate never has them in stock, and most of the time its 44t or less. Can't get bigger sprockets to save my life. If your going to make these things only available through a dealer, make sure that dealer has enough options for the customers. This has just become too frustrating for me, all I want is a 48T. Its like pulling my hair out trying to find one.

    John...Yes you can! Call Karen tomorrow and she'll get you fixed up.

    Tipsy...

    Pirate Cycles can not possibly stock all tooth count sprockets...I still take orders for custom sprockets. Nobody will be left out in the cold with thier adapter.

    Just call Karen, and she'll get you fixed up.

    Get a sprocket anywhere & drill the 3 holes to fit the Creative Engineering hub. I did. Just make sure it's centered. I bought the hub adapter from Pirate & used the sprocket I already had.

    Jim, while you're still reading this post I just want you to know: I love that adapter. I have one with a 38t and couldn't be happier with it. It seems flawlessly engineered, and perfectly funtional. Aside from the motor, it's my favorite part of the bike. I will never fool with another rag joint, I am spoiled!
