[EU] Thread-on single speed adapter/spacer for freewheel thread

Post by Aeron » Nov 13 2018 3:12am

Hi there,

I'm looking for a freewheel spacer to mount a single sprocket freewheel on my Mxus.
It looks something like this :

Used or not, basicaly as long as it is usable I may be interested.
I'm in the EU but if shipping is reasonnable I don't mind where it comes from.

Thanks !

I use this one https://www.ebikekit.com/products/freew ... or-1-speed . In the FAQ there are instructions for calculating international shipping charges.

They charge $40 to ship this item. I'm looking for something a little more affordable.

for 80$ I could get a guy to make 20+ of these with his lathe.
You could probably too.

Maybe, but I don't want to deal with the sale 19+ unused parts.
So, if anyone knows where I could find one of these used or new at a decent price, or if anyone want to make one for said decent price, feel free to post. Other answers/remarks are not needed, thanks.

I was just saying you can get a lot for 80$. You can go to a machine shop near you and just ask them to make one.

I understood. But if I ask here, it's because I've already looked how I could have one made locally, and it wasn't an acceptable solution either because no-one would make less than 5 (@ ~30€/pc) or because the single piece was more than $80.

Might be worth asking for a more reasonable shipping quote.

US to international shipping cost are spectacularly high. But usually not as high as you get quoted.
The shops are usually just too lazy to calculate realistic shipping cost because they don't really deal with that often.

While I'm ranting about US shipping. Never forget to remind US shippers to include correct shipping documentation (itemised pro forma bill) because they never ever get that right.

America, apparently a country that doesn't need exports. :lol:

Hey guys


So I asked him about it and he said 30€/piece, less if you buy more.
I told him to make 4 pieces since I could use two myself.

Shipping is 10€ to France with 5-10 day shipping from Austria.

Let me know what you think.

He is making them right now but he likes to take his time. I should have some pictures by the weekend.

That is really nice ! Thanks for the help, I'd definitely be interested (maybe even by two, just in case).
Do you need a CAD file or something ?

I gave him my MXUS side cover and a freewheel. He said he'll do the rest :lol:

I'll make sure to tell him not to make it wider than 25mm.
