sprocket vs skate wheel tensioner
Posted 21 April 2010 - 10:49 AM
skate wheel - if the bearing goes, its a matter of stopping at a skate shop, and if it siezes up its just going to wear a groove in the wheel, also if its not %100 prefectly aligned it dont matter really. id say maybe less of a chance of failure if somthing happens at high speed like skipping a tooth or somthing..
sprocket - looks cooler, might be a little smoother ? teeth and groves compared to a chain rolling on a prefectly round wheel, and theres no way the chain could really fall off in some crazy situation where your bike its leaned to far one way ot somthing
what u guys think

roller skate left standard skate board right
not done yet, made an adjustable mount for the other end of the spring that will be welded to the frame it has a cup that threads up and down to push the spring harder, i might mess with differnt hardness of springs so i can get a real hard one that i will just set and it wont abosrb much shock but this one is pretty stiff, and worst case it will fully compress unlike a torsion spring which can always go around some more with enough pressure
kinda big and overly complicated probly but i was half drunk when i made it
