    Wow...a 22-12 ratio is gonna be brutal.....I dunno if an 18-12 would be that bad though...:?

    What are the other components/frame?

    I think the smaller diameter of the rear wheel on the mod allows the 18-12 to be a reasonable ratio. On a 26inch wheel such ratio would be just ridiculous.

    I know Kings have a rear freewheel, but you can still run a front freewheel setup with a freewheel in the back.

    But that would work pretty damn crappy, since the engagement points would be less than either the front or rear points, because the first freewheel has to engage, then the second one, so it takes twice as long for anything to happen. No point really, people have tried it and found out it sucks.



    Very nice hubs by the way, can't wait to see them on your bike, I'm sure they're gonna make it look awesome, and ride great.

    i think BMF Chris said that if one of your two freewheels has lesser engagements, that is what your engagement point total will be. IE-Rear CK hub (72), front ACS claw (12), then you would have 12 engagements....Nice try on the cover up though ;)

    Edit: :hsugh: why on earth would you pay for a CK bmx hub but not want to use the 72 engagements....just seemed like you were trying to cover up a dumb post

    Cover up? I read that post by BMF Chris also, I know you get the lesser of the two, my original intention of saying that was to say that if he were using a front freewheel setup, the CK hub in the rear would be a waste since he wouldnt get those engagements. Maybe stop assuming what people are saying.

    Oh...OK...I missed the portion on it being a mod from another post...my bad......on a mod it's not unreasonable.Smaller wheel diameter makes the pedal stroke easier...like stated above somewhere...
