7 spd wide to close ratio 7 w/o the huge low gear?
has any one heard of or seen a 7 spd. with out that huge jump to low gear? I would like to even out my gearing, I never use the ultra-low cog. I think it would be cool if it was a closer ratio.
Get an 8 speed with the cogs you like and remove the smallest to fit on the 7spd freehub.
Is it that easy. I mean do the cogs just come off so i can take the biggest one off, or is there cutting involved?

sometimes a rivet or a tiny hex key accessible pin. my sram just required a hex key. if it is a rivet just drill the head until it is free. you do not need to replace either afterwards.
