Does anyone know of a 530 chain and sprocket kit for the Vee2?

I was going to suggest Chain Gang, but just did a google search and can no longer find their website. Maybe they have gone out of business? Although expensive (compared to Chinese) they had a reputation for making sprockets that last.

As mentioned in a previous post by QLDRider, Mark at Remarcables can supply the kit. However,he can't carry stock on the shelf but can get what you want pretty quickly. Just use the link in that post to contact him :smile2:

Chain Gang are still going but are exclusively pushbike gear. Have ordered a 'JT' sprocket and chain set they seem to be ok and on the money. http://www.jtsprockets.com/chain/
I have been buying Chain Gang for years. Talk going around is the guy who owns it said he could no longer find the right type of hardened steel for the sprockets and decided that quality was more important than sourcing an inferior hardened steel. Its a shame, I checked my invoices and found that the last set has lasted 4 years and some 50,000 kms - I also run a scott oiler too and attribute it to the longevity of the set.

Ok, apart from RemarCables, Link carry a 17 tooth front for around $30 and 42 tooth rear for around $66. A gold GXW RK chain on fleabay goes for $278 delivered. All in the 530 size, but the front is 8.6mm thick compared to the standard 525 at 7.2mm. Dennis from Link suggested checking with a mechanic as to whether this will be a problem or not.

Amazon had/still has some good prices for chain sprocket kits, though the sinking Aussie $ is beginning to impact. I got a DID X ring with JT chro-moly front and steel rear sprocket kit for about $180 delivered about 8 mths ago while ordering other stuff for my bikes. I think it now is around $240 Aussie delivered without other gear on the freight list, but still quite good value, blasphemous as I may be though ordering from OS. :thumbdown:
