I don't know if it's worth a darn or not but it sure looks good. That coupled with a good HT engine could give whole meaning to MB's.

Mine is shipping today. I'll let you guys know.

I mean you have to think, being able to shift and keep your motor at a low rpm is worth its weight is gold. Not only are you conserving even more fuel but your also saving wear and tear on your engine by keeping the rpm's low.

yeah that's Ghost0's (Jim) and Pablo's (Paul) company. We had a brain storming session for a name. We settled on Sick Bike Parts, and then we became a limited liability co, Sick Bike Parts LLC.

I shipped a bunch on Monday, yesterday and today. Those folks should start getting their kits very soon. Plus several people were at the open house on Saturday and took some home. One guy at my regular job bought two and his son installed both. The good news is they love them, the bad news is the guy didn't RTFM. He's 14 years old and worked until 4AM in the driveway installing them and left fasteners off, ground off stuff he didn't need too, didn't use loctite, etc, lost some parts, found the parts and reinstalled them - point being - they are functioning well despite a clearly unqualified installer.

I look forward to the first independent reviews!!

i cant wait to see them in action also !!! and do you sell just the crank freewheel set up or will the free wheel work on my crank !!! i would be siked if it would because i had a very similiar idea using all gear drive motor to jack shaft / elastomer to primary sprocket or even a geared sprocket it would be a 1 off thing but im a machinist thats why i dream of these silly things but let me know about the crank and free wheel set up your looks awsome

Currently we don't sell just the front freewheel. You need an extended crank so it would not work, plus it needs to be threaded on the crank arm.

pablo, i send my eternal grattitude for helping to invent this. my only wish is that the clutch plate be made availible, with the chain guard and pre ground out, and the shaft also pre ground out, cause i dont have a grinder and i dont have files. but overall i love this kit to death, and believe me im gonna get the bike with the most gears, for a wider range of gears. i will probablly be ordering at 12:00-2:00 central tommrow, do you have an idea of when it might ship out? thanks alot dude.
