On One Limited run frames
I'm am going to be in quite a bit of trouble at some point today. Lucky I have just taken the missus away for the weekend. 🙂
I really shouldn't get a Summer Season. If get anything I should get a sliding dropout inbred and singlespeed it, so as to have something lighter/lower maintenance than my Pitch for local rides and in bad weather. BUT THE SHINY ORANGE!!!! I WANTS IT!!!!!Posted 8 years ago
who else is sitting, wearing out the F5 (refresh) button on thier work computer waiting for the frame pre orders to be released?
whos after what frame?!
do we know how many of each frame thier are? (i realise i/we could just ASK but that would be too easy)
I myself am after an 18" Summer Season in lemon yellowPosted 8 years ago
if the slot dropout inbred was availible in that nice brown i could be tempted with that as well, but its not, luckily for my wallet.
Yeah. I'm there. I was all set on the Summer Season in Lemon, but it doesn't look the same in the new pics, so now I'm gonna go for Orange. 18.Posted 8 years ago
But making me nuts too and I don't want to start thinking about sizing and colors all over again.
I keep telling myself though, they are not really going to sell out in a couple of minutes. It's not like the Michael Jackson resurrection tour or anything.
theres a few options
magic ratio: ie, you find a ratio whereby the chain "just fits" but this is crap as you cant adjust for chain wear.
EBB: you can get an eccentric bottom bracket, that fits in a normal BB shell, but its about 120 quid + the bearings iirc.
spring loaded rear tensioner, like an on one doofer.
ugly, a bit noisy.
Fixed tensioner at the back (gusset bachelor, the dmr versions are rubbish). basicly a roller that pushes the chain up, i find much better than a sprung loaded one, but a minor faff to get the wheel out.
fixed tensioner at the front.
my method of choice, basicly use a roller, like in a chain guide, to push the chain up around the ring to take up the slack.
search for "black spire stinger". this will work even better on the ISGS mounts on the summer season, however they are 20 quid, and dont ALWAYS manage to take up enough slack (i will be using this, but will check how much slack is needed to be taken up first)Posted 8 years ago
it DOES however leave the back end TOTALLY un cluttered, and the wheel is SO easy to drop in and out, and when you drop it in, its automatically tensioned perfectly.
