I am going to be making some bikes designed for easy travel this summer but have to get some capitol running before i can.

and by the way RE when are you going to make your cool idler pulley for sale to the rest of us?
I am not sure which idler pulley you are talking about. I have made several variations. The trouble with making them to sell is the diameter and angle of the chain stays. I machine those in when I make them so there is no way to make them universal. All five bikes that I have done were just a little different. Not alot, but enough to change the alignment of the chain. It's like when Jim makes his parts, I would need the exact size's to match it to. Here is what I start with.
