Ding Ding Ding Round 2 - "Greasing the Tapirs".... It's hard to do. Catching them is one thing. Slathering them up with 90 weight gearlube just plain pisses them off, and they bite!
In trying to put some cold facts before this distinguished assembly, I conducted a raft of measurement tests (with more to come)...
Sterling effort but...
...I can guarantee you that someone will come on and say 'Yeah, but that doesn't prove anything!'
Mainly that it doesn't , other than where each sits on this setup. But it's nice to see.
The reason why it doesn't show anything is
a) What is shimano's recommendation.
b) Does it sit within the chain line specification. I.e +-1mm from its target I can check but I think that is what it used to be, it is not a tight tolerance iirc.
c) which leaves the better crank taper and bottom bracket surface.
d) was everything cleaned with Propanone to remove the anti-stuff.
e) what will each be like in a year in a dry shed... a salt winter commute and muddy rides.
f) many more but it's getting silly
g) LGF dibbed this page? or is that something else.
We do need pictures for proof and a nice graph
