Still haven't laced the hope hub as I'm waiting for the rims to arrive. What I did though was to change the grips the front lever (hose through the steerer as well) and mount the Rohloff spanner.

Looking good man - get those bars sprayed!

Did you try making the tensioner arm horizontal?

I think if you sprayed the rims black, they'd look really good. Black bars too.

This is as far to the front as the tensioner goes. 2 more links and it wouldn't have fitted. Black bars would mean black forks. Actually... I really don't like the color of the forks. :D

edit: I could get the tensioner a bit more forward if I took off the little pin that holds it to the derailleur hanger. Dunno how to describe it. It sits where normally the screw to adjust the height of the derailleur sits.

Removing that pin is a standard trials rider mod. Do it.

Ok. Should've known that before shortening the chain. Thanks.

Na, your chain looks fine. Just take the pin out and have the arm running parallel with the chain stay. The arm with the jockey wheels will drop a little but should be ok as the spring is solid.

Should be able to ditch the tensioner altogether

Nahhh... I don't like running loose chains. The KMC z610hx, while being a good chain, does stretch quite a bit. Did you run no tensioner on yours? You have the 2012 as well haven't you?

22:16? Doesn't it hit the chain stay after a while?

White might not be too bad after all. Green doesn't look to bad either I have to admit. :D

Tried it today. It doesn't work without the pin as the upper jockey wheel gets too close to the sprocket and makes the chain skip.

Put a washer between the hanger and main arm of the tensioner.

How would that help if the pulley is too high? It almost touches the sprocket. A washer would only move it sideways.

When you tighten a tensioner it has the ability to rotate, if you put a washer in there it makes it so that you can tighten the tensioner locked into a specific position.

OK. I didn't think of that. Thanks. But doesn't it move. The Trialtech tensioner was fixed at the chain stay but I cannot do this with the Rohloff.

I have. Ripped my pants and my shin apart. Since then I haven't gotten over it and run shin guards. :D

Finally had the time to lace the hub. I didn't bother to change the color of the rim.

Left the color of the rims. You never know what other frame may come my way. I really fancy something made of steel. IMG_20161030_092902.jpg
