    Gusset spacers...

    Any body else use these?? really doesn't give much room for chainline adjustment since the spacers are 14mm and 19mm (I think). It worked for my wheel, and they sure look cool.

    Yup I use those, they worked well for me. I ended up with a nice straight chainline on my Voodoo Bizango.

    tani's got em- something like 22 bucks- come with a 16 and a 18t cog, but any track cog will work.

    got a set for the Kona Cowen build-up and its a super sweet little setup!

    are you using quick releases on horizontal drop-outs or do you have ebb?
    how do the quick releases hold up if it is horizontal?

    I used a long/tandem QR

    the old steel kind and a Spot rocket tug (drive side) on horizontals (fork end-style). A regular length skewer would prob be OK too, but I wanted the extra security of the entire nut being threaded onto the skewer (the tug adds some thickness). No problems, but I'm a lightweight.

    nice price!

    if each cog would usually sell for $5, that's only $12 for the spacers, which is about what a fistfull of plain ol' cassette spacer would cost you.

    i think i will acquire some this weekend when i get my new fork inSStalled.

    track cogs are threaded

    won't work.... the whole kit includes the spacers, 16 and 18 cogs, and lock ring- good deal!

    Good job! thankSS ken!

    i picked some up friday and used them on my xt disc hubs for my SSanta cruz. they look bee-yotchin' and should work well. chainline is dead on for my SSetup, with a 113mm spindle length bb and turdvativ stylo team crankset (SS-ified w/ bashring).

    thanks for the tip!

    work with an 8spd?

    Will this work with an 8spd chain? Does the front chain ring have to be special or can I use an old small ring from the original three gears in front?

    yes, and yes.

    8 speed chains are fine. you can use the "stock" middle ring but they are not as durable as SS specific rings (usually SS specific rings are thicker) and SS specific rings have taller teeth, which may help keept the chain on.

    to start on a new conversion project, i'd just use the stock middle ring for starters to see if you like it, and to see if you can get away with it!

    good luck!
