Getting 14 tooth sprocket for singlespeed

Postby rdavighi » Sun Jun 17, 2007 10:22 am

Where can I get hold of sprockets that will slide onto my hub in replacement of the 16t I've got there at the moment? (Removed old cassette and fitted between spacers).

I can't seem to find them anywhere?
Any ideas?

See if the LBS has a used cassette you could take apart? Or Surly make them from 13t upwards - http://www.surlybikes.com

Hope this helps.

I should have one in the shed still (Shimano DX, purchased from Brixton Cycles) and I'd be happy to send it to you. I've used it for one day only when I rode the bike bit of the London Triathlon on it. I'm not doing that again (at least not with a singlespeed bike).

Let me know where to send it and it's yours - assuming it's still in the box in the shed.

Thanks again - I'll let you know how I get on when I try and grind up my big hill on the way to work!

fitted sprocket,got the chain right and then managed to get up the hill and it was ok - a bit of a grind though. Let's see what it's like on monday morning at 7am. Much better going down hill!
