I have found the Shimano rear conversion sprocket on the Bay. I have seen old crank sprockets being sold by fellow members here. Now, my only missing piece is the chain. Does anyone reproduce these? Or would I have to get a good used one,which seem to demand a pretty penny? If it's gonna be too much trouble, I'll probably just stick with what came stock. Thanks in advance for any help-Mike
Skiptooth setups reline the cool-o-meter. Go over to the auction site and buy a clean looking used diamond for $50 - $75 bucks. Drop it on and ride it hard. Worth the price. I've bought two of them with no issues. I've cleaned up rusty frozen ones from old bikes by soaking a week in both Evaporust and industrial purple cleaner from the depot and rode the heck out if them too. No biggie. Go for it!
