Change from 74BCD to 58BCD
I wanted some lower gears for my old legs,but really wanted to keep my old crank.So I looked into the quad ring adapter thing that takes Suntour? Regina? freewheel gears.Good idea,too hard to get gears for.So I figured,whoever made that thing is human,so am I,so I can make one too!
Got a piece of 1/8"-6061 tempered aluminum from work and brought it home.I wanted to see if I could make this with hand tools,things us types might have around the garage.I used a power drill,drills,coping saw,hacksaw and some hand files.
I used the above tools to make one of these out of aluminum:
Bolted it to the crank,set up the spacing,Done. Works Great! Shifts Great! How bout that...a 20 tooth gear on a crank with a 74BCD!
