Looking good Zach! I dig the 27.5s on there! Should lose that chain guard though. :-k Smile

Heres the progress on mine. Just got it laced up today.. 90mm Sturmey drum.

I built a 27.5" wheelset with Velocity hoops, Hope hubs, DT spokes, and a Surly 20t cog that we removed every other tooth from to make it a 10t skiptooth. 18t chain ring from a child's bike to get the gearing down. I was in AZ last week and saw all the parts sitting there getting dusty in a pile, same as it was 18 months ago! So I built it up. It still needs some caliper brackets welded on for the disc brakes, but it's pretty much all there now. I love swapping 27.5's on to 26" frames, they fit and work so well.


I really like the look of this bike very kool!!

George and I were just talking about building similar stuff for his schwinn.

Want to build a second set of those rollers??

Franz.. if you're looking to do a skip tooth on a modern style coaster brake hub... check this out.

I totally agree!! But it's not mine... he actually wants to bob the fenders and try to put those on there ](*,)

That modern skip tooth cog has me thinking... 27.5" coaster brake on my DX would be pretty rad.

I don't care about the skip tooth so much. Liking what Zach did with the freewheel disc hub. 3/8" x 110 bmx hub? How about cutting the frame to add a fancy disc drop-out?

My buddy did a similar reverse drop out with his Klunker, but without the disc brake. He turned an old Zenith 26" cruiser into a 29er, coaster brake. It's nuts.

Thanks Franz.. The rear will be a Sturmey drum also, with a White Industries freewheel.
