You have no faith in me Carl?Can you get a replacement cog after you (Oops!) trash this one? and as always, your results may vary...
Personally I'd lean towards replacing the odd gear that doesn't match the rest of them. But I have heard of guys thinning down sprockets before. Take your time, check and recheck repeatedly, you don't want to take off too much.
Don't worry, I don't have much faith in me pulling this bike off either. But then again, I never let that stop me before!
Trying to grind down the cog by myself was a little hard as the drill kept wanting to bounce around.
I have a catch every once in a while. It catches on the tooth coming off the cog, so I think it's just one or two teeth that need attention.
I think I will mark the teeth to see if it is the same one(s) catching. The front chain is way too loose and it has no adjustment right now, I plan to put a tension idler on it, Seeing as the BB is just tacked into place, I'll see about getting a better fit by moving it forward or back.
