    making sprocket swaps quicker



    i've got an assortment of front sprockets for this thing.

    i like to change to a for around town and for highway gearing.

    reference #35 is a flat piece that you beat over to lock the nut in place. is there an easier method for frequent swaps?

    I don't know, seems like the chain adjustment takes more time than the bent washer. I've never been thrilled with those bent washers though.

    A heavy duty multi serrated lock washer

    Maybe a commando alternator lock washer would fit

    If not, one appropriately sized and just like the commando washer would work fine.

    well the washers are cheap enough. its just a pain in the dick to hack and pry at them. i wanted something where a simple toolkit could do it.

    Then use a proper lock washer

    Procure a proper all metal prevailing torque nut

    Good enough for GE, Boeing, P&W and on and on.

    The splined lock tab and simple nut is very cost effective
