Thats painful to see  :005:  :232:

One downside to sticky tires is they are sticky...and doesn't discriminate on metal objects.

BTW: Did you take that off pavement?

True. I plugged it when I got home. Probably have a patch thrown on later. The tire place owes me one for putting my last tire on backwards.

What?!?!?! Lol

What is the clearance like when you put the frame cover back on? looks tight.

No issues with clearance at all, there is about 1cm gap between cover and rod.

Nice!  Let us know what you think of it.  I have an Annitori quick shifter that I have mixed feelings about, which looks like a similar molecular switch setup.

Ive done about 200 miles so far and I am happy with it (Translogic quickshifter), its good fun especially when you get on motorway, In town I still use clutch. It will shift in all ranges of RPM, there are no clunks although its not as smooth at lower RPM, you get a bit of a pull at shift, but no mechanical/metal noises.

Anything over 6k is really smooth, sometimes you just don't notice the shift at all, sometimes at the same RPM you do, didn't figured it out yet but I think pre-loading the lever makes it shift smoother rather than just shifting from the bottom.

Overall I like it, would I buy it again, yes just for the fun factor.

I got the worst possible picture of my 20k km lol. Snapshot from my GoPro with moskitos on the lense, sun on the screen, and blurred picture because I zoomed. But hey I got the 20k lol

Use a filter wrench and ratchet, simple 10 minute job.

Ive got a simple set of oil filter pliers. Makes the job a lot easier.
