Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Your **** out of luck then.
Just rotofix it and just wrap a bandana around the BB shell to prevent scratching.

There is definitely enough room in your apartment to wrap a bandana, towel, old t-shirt, etc. around your bb and rotofix that cog off.

You wont man...just be gentle with her and use a lot of protection.

Out of curiosity, about what kind of frame are we talking?

maybe you should go to your lbs and get a whip, i mean you're putting alot of time into this when you could have gotten a whip from your lbs already :s

I let hyperRevue do it to my virgin frame and it didn't hurt (it) a bit. Don't be afraid to use a little muscle. Or buy a chain whip, OR take it to a shop.
