Very, very nice. Love Suntour gear. How do you find Roody's collars? I had to take it out from non drive side and replace with old collar as they were too wide. Seem to be pretty tight there on your photo. I wouldn't tight cranks against collars as it can end up with crank tapers damage.

Yeah, I found the collars a little tight so took them off.I used spacers from Cook Bros in the end,solved the problem nicely
