    The rear drive just rotated around the crown gear and took the rest of the bike with it! (The rear wheel didn't move)

    I was attempting to set someone up with it need the conveyor belt as well. I semi fancy a V50 as well, a Monza for the wife, although I'm currently contemplating redoing my DT175MX, currently is a usable every day and green laning but tempted to make it a bit nicer and make it a bit more standard, even fit the indicators back.
