    Well done for wholesale copying your entire post, removing the references to Hitler and Stalin, and presenting the bizarre and unfounded argument as your own.

    Just needs a js: prefix (spelled in full), and wrapping in an IIFE, which I couldn't post because it was flagged as a security risk from cloudflare

    Could use a bookmarklet once you're already on the page?

    let newLabels = Array.from(document.querySelectorAll('.l­ist-collection-row .label.label-warning'));
    newLabels.map((label, i) => window.open(label.parentNode.querySelect­or('a').href, '_blank'));

    I have the beryl burner and it lasts around 25-30hours on a ‘wave’ mode, I think it’s called.
    Really happy with it overall. Nice and bright (but not too much), good modes and easy button interface. Plus, magnets.
    When you get it, there’s a little booklet with other mounting options including a saddle mount and I think a direct mount for saddle bags.
    Drop them a line and ask, they’re pretty helpful!

    Cheers, maybe I’m just worrying too much.
    What’s the usual minimum tension on the non-drive side?
    Is it just whatever it ends up at after tensioning the drive side?
    This is the first geared rear i’ve built.

    I'm building some Pacenti Brevet 700 rims onto Novatec hubs, but am having a bit of a problem getting the correct dish/tension on the rear.

    Spokes are Sapim Laser (1.5mm Non-drive side), Sapim Race (1.8mm drive side). And the max kgf for the rims is 125.

    As per Park's tension meter chart, I should be looking at a max tension of 22–23 on the drive side, and presumably no lower than ~60kgf / 11–12 on the tension meter for the NDS.

    Thing is, I still need more dish (1–2mm) but don't want to go any higher on the DS, and the NDS is already too low.

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Thanks

    Saw this in your newsletter, may I say very well done. Having dealt with awkward decaleurs this looks absolutely perfect.
