It was basically a parts transplant from the Hardrock plus odds and sods from the parts bin, Rob. Changed a few things, tried a few things that didn't quite work unfortunately, but reasonably happy with the end result.

That looks GR10 ZZ :)

Look's like just a magic ratio K (think that's the term anyway ?), my old E3 used just a 32-16, plain 8 speed chain with no tensioner.
