Taking off the small chain ring was easy. I just put the 52 on the back side of the spider and trimmed the sprocket bolts down to work with a single sprocket. I was lucky as the 52 literally is as close as it can be to the chain stay without rubbing! You couldn't slide a piece of binder paper in there.schwinnmesa said:That Peugeot is sweet! How hard was it to take the smaller sprocket out? It seems like that's always the biggest challenge!
52 teeth up front is a bit large but not too bad; a high number in the rear would be perfect. Some people would think I'm crazy with my gear ratio on my Fuji single speed at 52:16 but I like it; you can really fly!!! You sure you don't want to go 16 teeth in the rear? Hehe.
