I'm getting a deal on spline drive profile cranks but really love my bolt drive sprocket. Is there an adapter to make my sprocket run spline drive?

You COULD try to have it machined to fit a spline drive adaptor.

Not an ideal scenario though.

I'd rather not. It's a Laird sprocket brand new. So the profile adapters won't work for any sprocket besides their own?

The sprockets are machined to handle the adaptors (which usually resemble an 8 or so splined crank to a certain extent) so if your sprocket has a round hole in it, you aren't going to be able to "make it work" without machining the sprocket.

You COULD always take the Laird Sprocket and turn it into a clock or something? He said recently he won't be doing more of them, so it is pretty rare.

Yeah it's pretty much brand new...it'll go as spare parts for now until I decide to do something with it
