    Looking to make a bedix hub skip tooth so I'm looking for an even number tooth (20, 18 maybe?)bendix sproket. I will cut off every other tooth.
    It's for the build off so hopefully I can find something soon. Let me know what you have.

    Are you using a hub that uses a 3 tab sprocket or a sprocket that will screwon? Kevin

    Good luck with your project but you should know that a skiptooth sprocket is wider (thicker) than a standard 1/2" pitch and the teeth are way less "pointy". I have heard of people doing this with mixed results...most complain of the chain "jumping" on the modified sprocket or of the chain coming off altogether...just thought you should know before going thru all that work/trouble...P 8)

    hmmm... interesting stuff, thanks.
    what is the general consensus with running a 1/2" pitch on a skip tooth chain ring?
