Re: S3X Fixed Gear 3 Speed Update

Looks good. Note the Shimano freehub spline compatible input
sprockets and sprocket mount. Looks like they had to in order to
mount the small standard sprockets. Cannot use your old SA
sprockets without an adapter ;-)
If it can mount Shimano freehub sprockets however it raises a
concern. The standard sprockets shown are 12 and 13 teeth. If use
a Shimano larger sprocket for input then the hub input torque could
be raised considerably, possibly damaging it. The minimum input
ratio shown in the gearing chart is 3 to 1, 39/13 sprocket sizes,
but the drawing does not spell out whether this is a suggested ratio
or mandatory minimum.
