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)

Apparently this is a very stupid question.



How the hell do I get that 5th chainring bolt in a Sugino XD? The crank arm covers it, and there isn't even enough room to put the bolt there in the first place. What gives?

Do you have a picture of the underside of the crank arm?

so if you take the chainring off completely, there's no way you can get the nut between the spider arm and the crank arm?

It doesn't fit, and if it did I couldn't tighten it.

I think you're supposed to put the nut in there and the bolt on the other side.

I thought about that, but the tool to hold the nut to keep it from spinning won't even fit, I guess I'll try it.
