I purchased mine through danscomp 2 weeks ago and have been monitoring
my credit card account and no problems yet. I bought the bike before I saw the thread
about people having those problems with danscomp, It's been posted on another forum
as well, I'm sure danscomp has adressed the issue. About the bike though, It's the best bike
for flat you can get for that price(and probably the only one). good luck with your purchase!

I think it'll work bro because i upgraded to a 9T hub and a 23T sprocket. Pat from flatlandfuel says i can use a 23T to 25T on the opsis cranks

Thanks a lot. i also upgraded to a 9t hub and I'm now planning to go down a few teeth on the sprocket. i'll post a pic of my bike when I'm done. That white one looks real nice. Kinda makes me wish i didn't get the gray

You got the righty tighty, lefty loosey part correct. I think you just need to get a rachet with a longer handle to give you a lil more torque. or you could always set up the rachet to loosen, then take a rubber mallet to the rachet (caveman style :D)

I asked Pat from FF about this very thing just the other week...You can fit a standard drive 22t sprocket on the stock 2010 Opsis cranks but it has to be a standard drive 22t sprocket,can't be a 22t micro sprocket.

I asked which ones on FF would work and he said the Animal Sprocky Balboa would work fine

thanks for all the help guys. i had ordered the St. Martin English Sprocket about 2 days ago. Did he say that the animal sprocky balboa was the ONLY one that would fit? or was it more of a recommendation? I wouldnt mind modifying the St. Martin to fit, i just want to know what to expect when it arrives

Generally speaking any sprocket 23t and up will fit on any crank arm...you don't get into micro and nano gearing untill you get to 22t and below but some companies make 22t standard drive sprockets...The Animal Sprocky Balboa is a 22t standard drive sprocket so it will fit on the stock 2010 Opsis cranks...if you bought a 22t micro or nano drive sprocket it would not fit on the stock 2010 Opsis cranks.

The actual message Pat from FF sent me

"22T standard drive is the smallest you can go. (beware that some 22T are micro drive)."

And then I asked him about some of the sprockets on FF...

Thanks,I wasn't aware that some 22t sprockets were micro drive.

Could you tell me some 22t sprockets that you sell that will work with my stock Opsis cranks?

What about the 22t Animal Sprocky Balboa sprocket?

23t Quamen Stylez "S"?

A 23t Shadow Lighter sprocket?"

And he replied with this to say...

"all of those will work. Also check out the Nice brand sprocket. Sometimes with 22s your chain may rub the sprocket bolt a tiny bit. If that happens you just have to grind or dremel the outside of the bolt a little."

Good to know.

So my package came a lot earlier than i expected (not that I'm complaining) lol. and the sprocket went on just fine. I wish i could say the same for my chain but thats another story. lol

What's wrong with the chain...too long now lol.

Just get a chain breaker tool and take a few links out.When my Taska freecoaster that came stock on my 2010 DK Opsis crapped out on me I upgraded to a KHE Geisha Light freecoaster laced to a KHE Big V rim.This took me from a 28t sprocket and a 12t driver to a 28t sprocket and a 9t driver so from a 2:1 gear ratio to a 3.11:1 gear ratio.All I had to do was remove 2-3 links from my stock chain and it fits perfect...depending on how short or long you need the chain you may need a half link but I think you'll be able to get away with out one like I did.
