    Chain adjuster change:

    I got rid of the snail type chain adjusters. It ways always hard to get that right amount of slack. So here's what I did: (see pics). For the index marks I cut off part of a combination square, the rest of the parts I made. I also left the pin on the swing arm in case this didn't work out. But so far it works.

    That is a proper chain adjuster. Snail cams seem so inferior to the traditional style replicated by Prairierider. Well done!
