    SJS aren’t known for their cheapness but even so, that must be a mistake?

    Bought mine off them from their ebay shop. A year or so ago they were listing one every week – think I paid about a tenner with their ridiculous postage charges.

    I remember buying some of these things for £1 a time at one of those 1 day bike sales a few years ago, just for a laugh.

    Don’t think I even used them! I’ll have to try and dig them out, if they’re worth £50 each now it may well be the wisest money I ever invested! 😉

    Too expensive to risk putting on your bike, that’s for sure.

    That’s a Mk2 one in the pic and on that site.
    The early ones didn’t have a hole for the zip tie to go through.

    Has anybody EVER jammed a chain between a tire and chainstay? That must take some doing (impossible probably)…

    Quick Edit: Why do these always remind me of smokey grey Shogun XTs… Weird.

    Good effort Franki! I can’t see how you can get that much slack in the chain, that close to the chainrings on the exit of the rings. Does it take a really sticky freehub, I wonder?

    This is a lesson in supply and demand. O level economics. Or they got the price wrong.
