    So I put a Wheels Manufacturing SS conversion kit on my bike and then got a new 25T sprocket and lo and behold... a 12T cog will not fit on back with a 1/8" chain. I put a 14T on temporarily and it works for now, but the ratio is low for my taste. Does anyone make spacers to fit a 12T cog on a regular 8/9 speed freehub body?

    you will have to grind down the thickness of regular spacers, look real close to the spacers on either side of this cog, also a 12...

    Thanks WCH, thats what I kinda figured, but thought *maybe* somebody had seen some ultra thin ones for sale. I need to make friends with better tools......

    i'm not saying that there aren't thinner ones to be found, but you will have to search pretty hard to find them...

    (edit: hank seems to have the solution)
