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)

Coasterbrake interchangability?

Hello,

I'm awaiting the delivery of my coasterbrake-deep-V's from the U.S. of A. before proceeding to convert my Fake Colnago (see Classic board) to a Coastie!

In preparation I've read most of the posts about coasterbrakes on this board, but I still have a couple of questions:
- Many a time it's been mentioned that the Hi-stop coaster brake hub (mine) and the Shimano CB-110 are from the same (KT) source. But are the parts also interchangable, I mean the internals, Shimano parts are available galore, so that would help in the future.
- Is the Splined sprocket design universal? I.e. will these sprockets work? although they seem to be made for 7-speed (nexus?) hubs?
Since I'm in the netherlands that would save me the $35 shipping for the Sprockets available @ Harris Cyclery

Maybe the Coasterbrake-guru JimV can shed some light

Grtz
Dennis

Don't bet on interchangability. Even though nearly every coaster brake hub you're likely to run across these days works exactly the same, and may even look identical, the innards may not be interchangeable.

I've ordered the wheels from this Ebay-store:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ksid=p3907.m29
Wheels are a little bit cheaper than the NYC-bikes ones, Hi-stop Hub instead of Shimano.
Shipping to Europe a little bit more expensive.
But they also sell real cheap tiresets, so all and all the deal was better.

They should be here next week.
Can't wait to mount them and rip it up!.... my SS-Fakexie-Coastie-Colfako is all rigged up and ready to go except the wheels.

Doesn't specify which kind of sprocket though....
But because they come from the same (asian) source it should probably be the same as on Shimano hubs, including the 8-speed/Nexus ones sold here in Holland (at least.... I hope so, or else the deal wasn't so good afterall).

Three splined sprockets are generally interchangeable. I've come across some older Bendix hubs that just barely would not accept a more modern Shimano/KT sprockets, the I.D. being slightly different. But it seems all modern three spline sprockets and hubs are interchangeable.

they are interchangable as far as spoke length,I relace my original trek cc rim and wheel and the original spokes worth fin until the rim cracked,so I had an old steel wheel from my old wal-mart bike and trimmed the spokes to the length of the coaster brake spokes, wheel and its fine now.

The hi-stop hub you have are used on those wal-mart bike and those department store cheappies.As fo r the rear sprockets sometime the manufacturers make the inner hole metal a little thinner which mean your sprocket will have a little play in it and you will have to either find a washer/spacer or get the proper sprocket.

go to your LBS and try some.
