    07 DK Six Pack

    hi everyone i am going to get the 2007 DK six pack at the end of the year and i was wondering what is the smallest back sprocket that will fit on the stock hub. i want to run a 25-9 gearing. will the stock hub be able to run this or will i have to wait untill i get new rims untill i can change the gearing and if so what hub will i have to get with the rims so that i can run the 25-9 gearing

    You need a new hub to change the gearing... you can't have a 25-9 gearing if you have a 13 tooth freewheel. 13 does not equal 9
    To be able to run this, you need to buy a new backwheel with a 9 tooth cassette hub.

    If it is a free wheel(which it is on the DK Six Pack), then the smallest you can run is 13t in the back. To go smaller than that, you will need to get a new rear wheel with a cassette hub.

    i am not a noob and gunzofsteel 921 you told me that a 13tooth sprocket doesn't equaal a 9tooth. i think i know that, i am not dumb but my question was; can i run a 13 tooth on the stock DK hub and i got the answer that i needed so thank you chorusXtwo. when i wreck the stock rims i will get some new ones with a cassette hub. and lunchbox why is this post 5 months early the 2007 DK six pack is already out in the shops because i was having a look at one back in july. they come out in the July time of the year before.

    Hey Jono, did you bother to read my whole post? I said something like this... "To be able to run this, you need to buy a new backwheel with a 9 tooth cassette hub."

    It's early because you plan on buying this at the end of the year.

    yeah and thats why i am trying to see what spares i will get when i get my bike. anyways what do yous think of the Four Pack. i will be able to change the gearing on it because it has a cassette hub abd has a lot better componenets. so what do you reckon is it worth the extra money.

    If your gonna spend more money like that, there are better options than the four pack... such as the Fit Flow... or the new top of the line Stolen bikes actually.

    but i would really like to stick with the Dk because i want the straight cable and i like the chrome back rim with the black front rim and overall look of the bike. i dont really like the look of the fits to be honest.

    DK really isn't that great, and their frames all have bad reputations. You can get a straight cable, chrome back rim, black front rim, and a better bike elsewhere. If you are going to be spending that much money, the DK isn't the way to go. Check out the new Stolen bikes, they come stock with low gearing ratios.

    have a look at this link and look at the big chunky ones. then on the dropdown menu you can choose what size to get and they have the option of a 9 tooth cog. http://www.danscomp.com/products.php...how=FREEWHEELS

    Uhm... those are 9t cogs for cassette hubs, not freewheels. You can't change just the cog on freewheels, you have to change out the whole freewheel to change the size.
