Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

After discovering they exist, and they're a shelf item at my local bike shop, I bought a couple of 'chain adjusters'. In case I got the name wrong, they're the little doodads that stop your rear axle from creeping forward and putting the wheel out of whack.
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.

I cant agree with you more on this Paul, after putting the new carb on my dax build yesterday, I have been just bubbling about how much better it runs, and I enjoyed the ride yesterday very much, actually ended up pedaling about 3/4 of a mile home because I ran it out of gas..... that stunk pretty bad because it was uphill almost the entire way, had to get off bike and walk some of it, dang legs burning...!

Happy riding all....
