Not made on this planet
Alan B wrote:My derailleur problem is a 9 speed derailleur doesn't expect a 34 tooth gear in position #4, so it doesn't clear the gear, but runs into the side of that gear. It would handle a 34t gear is position #1 just fine, it is designed for that. But the 6 gear freewheel is skipping the first three gear positions, effectively.
So that is one danger of making a 6 or 7 gear freewheel. The derailleur may not be opened up enough to clear the largest gear if it is made too large.
At least that has been my experience with mine.

$110 with 3 days left for a freewheel that probably cost $20 ten years ago.

BTW guys, i am getting one of the 'beta test' 7 speed 11t-28t DNP freewheels and will give it 6 months of thrashing.
Fingers crossed that DNP has got the bugs worked out of this freewheel. If so, i will buy a baker's dozen and sell them as new old stock for a few hundred bucks too..
