Chain wheel and rear sprocket unaligned. Help?
hey so today i snapped my halflink on my bmx bike and i thought about it and i think its because the two sprockets are not aligned correctly. How do i solve this problem? ps dont know if this helps but its a Fit 3 Piece Crank and a Nitrous Wheel. gear ratio is 25/9. i need the bike set by Saturday so plz answer soon. ill buy another halflink tomorrow probably.

the fastest way if you need it that fast would be to trust your local bike shop. to many variables and no pics and not enough info


There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"

Did the bike come with the 25/9 or did you replace one of them?

Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

The method with a SS or fixie; if the sprocket on the rear hub cannot be adjusted shims, is different lengths of BB axles. You need to measure what you have, and calculate what you need.

I hate it when they never come back & tell you what they did to solve the issue.
