    Given how many folks expressed a wish for less gobshite and more engineering content, I'm surprised if took until page 16 for Peak Torque to rate a mention.

    I love how wild that Corima front is, but even more, how the rear makes it look totally sane.

    Looks like total asplode material... Wonder how it holds up?

    The keyboard mashing on the Minger here stopped me in my tracks

    Mad props for the Clarke & Dawe.

    Biggest of ups for making it one of my all-time faves 😃

    Yeah, of course it does. The top pulley reduces the angle by 1/12th, and the bottom reduces it by 3/14ths. I think - I might be a bit too stoned to be sure.

    Bigger pulleys, less angle. There's more wrap than you'd get with a longer cage like the upgrade kits, but I'm pretty sure that counts for jack shit, it's just the articulation angle that matters.

    BTW, these pulleys I bought off eBay specifically to jam in my Red derailer, which took them with no modification. Different story with the Dura-Ace number, had to cut off one pin and go more than halfway through the other one.

    And yet your post of your own bike is still here.

    Okay folks, what makes more sense? Delete the pic, so nobody in future sees the subject of discussion, or leave it up and everyone but captain wank here gets on with their lives?
