it's a shimano sora derailler. no barrel adjuster and no shifter.

i don't know if the rim is supposed to have this much tension, but it hasn't failed yet in 2 small rides. It's stiff as hell, so i like it.

So U run a single speed..
and use a derailer...
Can U explain that to me... Just wondering... seeing as how there is the drop down place holder for bikes now that is just a bar and roller so U don't have all that extra stuff...

yea cause nobody else runs single speed with derailleurs. :rolleyes: pft.

all the tensioners are bad. the springs break. and they cost way more than they should. derailleurs are cheap and they have massive spring tension that doesnt get weak.

all you have to do is adjust the limit screws on the derailer. set it to what gear you want and your done. depending on the gear you may have to make trip to the hardware store to get a longer screw.

Really!? I was planning on running a short cable with a stopper on the end, but your way sounds alot better. I'm looking at my sora right now and see a few different screws, which one is it?

Thanks

it's the two screws on the back of the derailler. One is high limit one is low. You basically just want to set them so the derailler can't move up or down. It will stay in one gear. Good luck. You will like it a lot if you get it working. :)
