After four years of swearing at my last bike's chains and often realigning the wheel, this purchase of two $2.50 parts has made me rather happy. The new build will be so much more of a joy.
Chain adjusters were always a standard fitting on the aged heavyweight English bicycles I like to ride. I don't know why they fell out of favour on modern bikes because they ready do work and they take all the worry out of maintaining proper chain adjustment and wheel alignment.
