I'm going to use it as often as I can. In fact I wish I had a chain right here.

It might be useless but it's a nice little detail.

26.4 seatposts come up pretty often on ebay, never anything that nice but they do tend to go for peanuts. The bankrupt stock guys may have some too, i'm not sure.

I spotted those, Chain Reaction have a few as well. The problem with modern ones is the large white logos they all seem to have.

Though if the logo says something cool like Syncros or Thompson I can handle it better :lol:

He usually slavers sh#te but this time hes right and yes they are useful it stop your rear mech from flipping its self inside out and also help a little with fitting the wheel back in keeping a bit of tension on the chain. In fact Ive had the chain on the middle ring and I can turn the cranks gently and lub the chain.
