    JB Weld...I'll just keep my mouth shut about that stuff...and it's hard, really hard. I'll just say that unless you are using it as a non-structural filler someplace... laff

    good lord don't give him a rag joint he'll weld it on.
    You all need to check out the "it even has electric start" buy Doc blom now there's a guy
    who can make anything fit that should never be assembled together. Not Doc
    he just put up the photo.
    We need that thing on a tee shirt. Or on our banner!!
    With "yea I build motorized bikes"

    You got it Hugh!

    I think the stuff carries some mystic because the name includes the word "weld".

    Therefore it is used for all sorts of inappropriate applications.

    It's a, cold, low strenghth epoxy...nothing more...nothing less. West systems is far superior and I would never consider using it for a metal on metal mechanical bond.

    i wonder if i could use a self vulcanizing patch kit to attach a rag joint to my spokes?

    or maybe some shoe-goo. that's the rubber equivalent of JB weld.

    regards,

    Steve,

    Check with Rocksolid...they may be out of stock...if they are let me know and we'll get you one. The shipping cost to Australia isn't too bad.

    Jim,
    I've got an idea! Karen could ship some Duck Tape and some tie wraps with every
    sprocket adapter. That way if it doesn't fit they could wrap some tape around the hub
    and add the tie wraps to the spokes to keep it from slipping!! Just another simple
    solution to customer satisfaction!

    Hey there, brnot
    I'm a big guy and got a Skyhawk 48cc on a 26" MTB cause it is legal. Runs good, but I've got to run choke when warm about half way. Still breaking in, only about 25 miles on it. I'm 25/1 mix. Will it gain more power once it breaks in?

    Ya a little but if you have to run with the choke on your not getting enough gas.
    Either the carb isn't set right or you have an air leak.

    You know in the business world they say "the customer is always right." I believe you found the exception to that rule. Holy carp, how can someone mess up an engineering masterpiece like your sprocket adapter?
