    doing a beach cruiser (coaster brake hub) install and have a question:

    do I install the large (from kit) sprocket right up against the spokes, or do I use the second padded disc that the kit came with?

    Seems I can get a straighter install easier if I go right up against the spokes.

    Any input appreciated.

    I did a cruiser coaster brake install. I enlarged the hole in the sprocket vs cutting the dust cup. Sandwich the spokes between the two rubber pieces supplied. Also in most kits the sprocket is shaped like a dish/plate. Install the sprocket so as that you would be looking into the plate..(bottom of plate to the rubber). This is especially needed with the larger cruiser tires.
