    help wanted!

    I'm trying to put an engine kit on a Micargi Bronco
    it has 66 spokes..I have a maniac sprocket. I got the adapter to fit around the hub.Ineed to get the screw holes past the spokes (as shown in pic)

    Any advice?
    Anyone know if its ok to remove 3 spokes? will the wheel give problems?
    thanks!

    What I've done in the past is to loosen the three spokes just enough to push the bolt past then re-snug the spoke. The spoke forms AROUND the bolt and seems to hold just fine as long as you dont kink the spoke, Just a gentle bend AROUND the bolt. Then throw it on yer trueing station to make sure you didnt put it out of true. I've never had a problem doing it this way. And with 66 spokes, even if one broke, no biggie.
