Default Re: A new shift concept for the engineers....

I finally got my bike back together and one of the things I have noticed when I try to switch between my 44t sproket and my 50 is that there is way to much chain to slack out. the tensioner for a left side hub is the real key, because you are working with much bigger sprockets, the amount of chain that needs to be tensioned is huge, and because the drive sprocket is above the chain stay you are limited to where you can "store" the chain. But I will endeavor to persevere.
