    I built one a little while back. However, I did have the luxury of a cnc mill to do the cutting. The sprockets are hardened so it is not an easy task cutting them. I cut the sprocket, made a spacer and then tig welded it back together. I cannot tell you how the life span will be but it has worked great so far to get me out around my thick brick tires.

    The next time I make a couple I will keep you in mind. I have a couple of builds going that I am surely going to need the extra spacing on.

    I actually dont need one (yet), but asked since Im sure there are some here who might be in need and dont know anybody in their area to do such good work. I would think that each 'conversion' would probably have its own specific offset, so 'to order' would get 'em spot on.
    Isnt it something that simple bicycles can be so complicated :wink:
