Spoke Chain Tensioner

Well, the Echo TR tensioner doesn't fit either. The pulley is too far inside and there's now way to adjust it. It's almost 1cm off to the left.

Well. I suppose that the Trialtech sprocket that ends on the right hand side of the threads isn't supposed to be mounted like this. In either case, having the sprocket in line with the tensioner would put the now perfect chain line off by around 1cm to the left; with an Echo sprocket it would still be 5mm.

Oh and I'm such an IDIOT! I filed down the snail cam bolt to the level of the snail cam and now the 74kings fits as it is mounted between the hub spacer and the snail cam.

Again. I'm an idiot! Should've done that earlier!

edit: I will have to file down the spacer by one mm still as I have to widen the frame a tiny bit. Wouldn't bother with a steel frame but aluminum is different I guess.

Tested it yesterday. It worked except that it moved once and I had to tighten the bolt.
