Looking good. For the chain device, I think a DMR would suit it, or, if you could find one, a Roox Chain Animal or Rollercoaster. I had a rollercoaster off e-bay for £15, didn't fit the frame I had at the time so sold it. Now I have a frame which it'd be good for :(

Ow nice one looks good i like it alot think only real thing is apart from the frame is mines a bit of retro with modern twist and ur is mostly all retro style but i like that. i like the rear shock on there was thinking about getting one for mine but never looked into weather the i2i and the stroke was the same.

Im afraid to say i allready sold the Tora's to a mate of mine for his zaskar sorry.

I don't think the i2i is the same. Since changing over I'm having a lot of trouble with the outer ring (which is a 46t monster anyway) catching the chainstay when there is no weight on the bike. Gonna replace that with a 42 which gives me the clearance.

rite ok ill steer away from that idea then does look like the LT plates are sitting a bit more horizontal than most of them, ow yeah there 190mm i2i instead of 185mm shame cos it does look sweet hopefully the chainring change sorts it out.
