    Well, If you have a full set of spacers, I would go to the LBS and drop $5 on a Shimano DX bmx cog in the size that you desire (What gearing do you want to run?). take the cassette off and put it in the parts bin and use the spacers to get the desired chain line with the cog.

    It will fit just right. I also got the spacer kit from Excel Sports and am using the Shimano bmx cog. They are dirt cheap at about 5 bucks.

    You bought spacers?

    You know you get 4 for free with each old worn out cog you convince the shop wrench not to throw in the trash, not to mention, you get 8 free gears to use. Get two old worn cogs, and you have a complete set of spacers, along with an assortment of cogs to play with. Just drill out the rivets or remove the tiny long bolts, and pop them apart.

    Get FREE spacers, or make your own out of PVC..

    then get a King Kog.

    That's eggs-zachary what you're looking for. Now all you need is a bit of PVC pipe, a hacksaw and you're all set man!

    Okay...now that I got my BMX cog and set of spacers, how do I lock everything on?? Am I missing a part here that does that?

    you need a lockring tool

    and maybe a chainwhip for later (if you want to change gears or if you don't get the spacing right the first time and you need to re-do it).

    and probably the first cog (they work together to hold the lockring in place). If you look at gpsser's photo you'll see the first cog is being used. If you don't have an old casssette to pull from your LBS should have an old ring and cog they'll give you (or at least save one for you). If you get desperate let me know I got a few extra.
