    A quick hit by a car story... i'm coming over the leaside bridge from work, approaching the fork in the road (where it splits onto Donlands/Pape) and I need to continue along Donlands (need to cut over a lane of traffic to do so), shoulder check... shoulder check again... making my way over and BAM. I'm on my ass, pick myself, my bike and my ipod off the road and head to the side. The guy stopped thankfully. I dusted myself off, checked over the bike nothing wrong that i could see (bike first, me second... priorities). Scraped elbow, scraped hip, nothing major. The guy insisted on giving me 50 bucks and we were both on our way.

    Hindsight - 2 broken spokes, wheel out of true, some scraped paint, grip ripped, torn coat and a very sore body the next day. I should have taken all of his info. Lesson learned. Next time.

    Thanks for the offer guys. That's real nice of you. luckily for me I don't have far to go to work (<300m). I have a feeling I'll get to know my Fetish a bit more this week.

    haha yeah that one is mine alright. I sourced a triple crank for it so today I am in search of 2 SS rings in 110. I'm going to replace the QR seat collar so I don't have to carry around the seatpost and saddle, and I may cut the bars down a little, but I'm going to hold off on that for now.

    Queen was pretty crazy yesterday. All the shoppers are out idling and hunting for parking spaces. Bikes are far superior.

    Perfect. I was going to swing by there to get a chainwhip anyways.


    Now a tough question. I have this chain tensioner (branded Axiom)
    http://harriscyclery.net/itemdetails.cfm?ID=1329

    Does anyone know if it would be possible to use another jockey pulley which I would slide onto the spindle to allow me to get perfect chainline with 2 cogs and 2 chainrings? Seems like the best all round solution. Anyone got an old or broken derailleur with some pulleys I could try to adapt?

    That tensoner adjusts in/out. You should be able to move it when you shift the chain easily. I'm not sure a pulley wheel will work. Seems to be a square edge where the wheel is in the pic, pulley wheels are round. Best bet is to check lbs for one and go from there. Keeping my 7 speed deraileur for wifes bike if I ever build one for her.

    It does adjust in and out but I don't want to have to dig up an allen key every time I want to change gears. I made a diagram of how it works. That square edge doesn't really serve a purpose other than giving you something to stick a wrench on if you want to seriously overtension the bolt (number 1 on the diagram). I think all I have to do is insert an extra pulley next to where the original one is. If I got a replacement set of pulleys I'd be able to ditch the cheap pulley that came with it and have 2 good quality with bearings instead.

    1. allen bolt
    2. cheap plastic pulley and metal seals (no bearings)
    3. chain guide
    4. female threaded spindle
    5. allen bolt
    6. tensioner arm
    7. spring and attachment hardware

    Hhehe, cool, thanks. I really like the Alter's stiffness and I am surprised that I can notice such a big difference between it and the generic thing I had on before. I just hope it doesn't break like they are known for doing.
