whats the feedback on shifter kits ,sure works cool.I want one.Sick bike parts set up looks nice.
i am very interested in a SBP kit as well looking for right after christmas to purchase but i would like some input as well
Check out this thread:
I have a shifter kit. It is a very good product. However, you might need to change your bottom brackets. It requires 127mm or longer bottom brackets. You might also find some difficulty in aligning the chain lines. Also, be careful not to loose the key locks, it can slip out if you don't locktite it. I lost one of mine. You also need to paint it, so roughen the surfaces first, use a primer then paint it over with the final finishing paint. Use a heavy duty BMX chain.
You should also have an adequate space between your rear wheel and your seatpost, or install a smaller rear wheel if you have disc brakes.
Before, my Motorized bicycle maxed out 25mph, now it can reach to 44mph in 6th gear.
Engine does not have power anymore after 6th gear. I'm using an 8 speed internal gear hub.There is substantial improvement in hill climbing ability.
Also, Paul is very nice and they give all the support to meet their customers' needs.
Thanks for the great comments. I can follow up on the above.
Indeed - you should be aware of what style BB (bottom bracket) your bike has. The kit is designed for a standard three piece BB, but will work with most any BB with the correct adaptation. We sell two styles of adapters for one piece, so that's no problem. Technocyclist's bike had a sealed cartridge style, hence his mention of needing a 127mm replacement.
The chain alignment is critical, but not difficult. We definitely recommend Loctite and filing flats on the jackshaft.
The new HD plates all come powder coated with primer now. HD chain is fine, but as long as your current chain is in good shape it will do OK. Spacing and other details are here: Requirements
Hey Pablo, are you staying warm out there? It's cooolld,d,d here in the metro!
My suggestion is to toss the cartridge style, for $10 you can get the bearing set to convert to the old 3 piece style. $10 seems cheap to eliminate some of the headaches not converting may cause.
22 degrees up here in Bellingham with about 8 inches of snow, fun drive to work this morning.
Hey Ghost0 and Pablo, do you guys think this chain would be a suitable chain for use with the kit? my bike chain is 10 years old...

If it's the right size, then it should be fine.
I'm stuck at home today. Roads are closed!!

well that looks like fun, lol.
Yeah the shifter system was a well I can make one thing but If it gets down to say 160 Id consider it. Oh cold and deep Snow here in Kelso Longview.
I just got back from the post office and just sent a money order to sickbikeparts. I'm not too happy with our exchange rate, the kit cost me $262.00 but I guess there is no turning back now....
The thing is that if you were to price out all of the parts, $199.50 is not a bad deal but almost $300 Canadian is like a kick in the head.
It's sad to think that a few months ago, our dollars were about even.
Tell me about it!!! Kit cost me close to £180 thats 320.21 CAD / 262 USD but thats not pablo's fault thats shipping on top, the only thing im scared of is 15% import tax making it 301USD or
