@unterhausen, have you considered using the inner two positions of a road triple for that?
Thanks! I love cobbling things together. To that point, I also don't like the high Q factor of mountain sets, and I happened to have this road double sitting around, so swapping the outer ring was a quick $16 on ebay for the BMX chainring I bought. The chainline on a dedicated triple is not as good as on a double, although I get your point about maybe getting the gears you want for a cheap price, and perhaps you could tweak it with a wider spindle on the BB.
