Any suggestions on removing the front sprocket without a Impact wrench? Looking for suggestions.... I just got the 520 conversion and having trouble getting the front sprocket off.

Thanks....

i went -1 in the front sprocket, this was very easy to do. i put the bike in gear before i started tearing off parts, dont loosen the back tire and chain yet, let the chain help you break lose the front sprocket nut....have someone hold down rear brake lever with firm force, while you muscle that big f'in nut off!!!!!!!!!!! that nut has locktite on it so it is gonna be a mutha f***** , but it will come off after a min or two.

That plus a 2-2½' water pipe as an extension on your wrench - you can move anything if you have enough leverage

yeah leverage is the key! stand back and look at it and youll come up with a way to hook up a wrench and put a pipe (piece of fence fost for me) on itand itll budge! remember to use it when reinstalling also!
