    Easier than adjusting your own attitude. :D

    This one is a Pablo Personal Gripe (PPG) special....some bike set-ups with the Shifter Kit make for tough chain adjustment, and just when it's perfect, the chain goes a little slack. The new chain adjuster is just too easy.

    I know - why didn't we have this sooner! :oops:

    Nice simple idea, looks like it'll work well.

    It's always those simple ideas that take a while to come by :)

    All our early attempts were with pulling the engine up.....from the seat clamp or top bar with a tie rod end, etc - more expensive, visible, complex - yet did not work as well!.....then the genius Jim (and dummy I) both said lets design a "pusher" as if on cue!

    OH! It moves the rear up and down to keep the chain in place!
    I had to look at that for a while.
