    The clamshell hub works great,but you have to use there sprocket with because of the hole pattern.Takes the pull off the spokes.

    Got mine from Livefastmotors. Hollywood is correct, use their sprocket or the holes won't line up. They are a bit pricey, but very well made, so worth it. It takes alot of the torque away from the spokes. Good luck!!

    I also am using the Livefast Clamshell Hub, I'm using a stock 44t sprocket for a schwinn skyliner and a 33t sprocket from spookytooth...drilled both without any issue. I just used a drillpress at a speed of 400rpm and lots of cutting oil... no issues and actually looks pretty neat. Thinking about making more speed holes. I have a couple of picture in graucho's link.
