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)

Chain Problem

Hi everyone,
I am finishing up my first conversion and I'm having an issue getting the chain to fit the rear sprocket. Is this simply the wrong size sprocket for my chain (1/8 vs. 3/32)? When the chain is on the sprocket, the teeth don't match up with the holes...
Thanks in advance.

a 1/8 chain will work on a 3/32 but not the other way around

Thatís exactly your problem. Been there done that. My first fixie I was just like what the hell is going on. And then I found the interweb.
