    doubling up on cogs...

    hey guys,

    here's my question. Do you think it would be possible to put two of the same sized cogs right next to each other on a freewheel (i.e. no spacers in between) and fill the rest of the casette with spacers/pvc pipe/etc to build a singlespeed? I would then use a big old double wide super ultimate BMX chain and a big fat toothed BMX chainwheel up front.

    am i TOTALLY CRAZY?!?!

    Go for it

    If the chain fits around both cogs (you can tell long before building it up), why wouldn't it work? Is the idea crazy? Sure, but everybody around here likes crazy stuff. Dat Y we singaspeedurz.

    =] Oops, sorry, we're supposed to use one of these:
