Cheers AJ but think this ones a keeper. Am probably going to change the rear swing arm for a BETD one they look lush and offer another inch and a half of travel and cant decide weather or not to change the Z1's for some super T pro's.
Finaly got the cranks, grips and a few other little things sorted today so it now finished i think.

Is your chain device 4 or 5 arm.
Just curious as I've got a spare outer plate for a 5 arm compact drive (up to 50t :shock: ).

Hi Xizang not entirely sure what you mean but the chaindevice has 3 arms bolting to the frame and the cranks are 4 arm.
Took out on sunday for a ood ride as you can see for the first time, its such a nice ride just proving to be alittle problamatic setting up the chain device but all gremlins will be ironed out soon.

3 arms bolting to the frame would be an ISCG fitting, either Old or '05. I was referring to the crank arms though, my outer plate is for a 5 arm crank, so no good to you :(

The chain-ring should be in the middle ring position. How and where is it too far over? The middle position is used for the optimum chain-line for all gears when running 1 ring up front. And because this is how a MRP, e-13 chain device works, by sandwiching the ring between the 2 plates.
