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.

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
