I'm looking to extend the gear range on my Swift (xootr). Soon the kid will be old enough to ride along, so a child trailer is soon on the horizon.
I'm thinking about adding a smaller chain ring (38t) to where the current chain ring is, an moving the current big ring to where the chain gaurd currently is. I'll just switch the the chain over by hand, depending if the trailer is attached or not. I'd like to pair this with a wider range cassette 11-32 or 1-34.
I seem to recall that someone did something similar on the massive swift folder thread, but I can't find it now. ( That thread is huge! )
Any reason why this shouldn't work ?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
