Re: The twin-chain beast...

lol it prob just a matter of adjusting the freewheels so engagement happens simultainiously with the chain tension


I can fix anything... or i can screw it up so badly nobody will EVER fix it...

It works!

The chains are both being pulled tight at the same time.

I sound like Darth Vader breathing in the background! LOL!

Re: The twin-chain beast...

Here it is in normal operation. I still need to WD40 the freewheels, but they are pretty loud already...

Nope.. weather is still freezing-ass cold. I might take the 29'er for a ride in the dark. Should be able to see just fine since everything is white.

Re: The twin-chain beast...

but the chain slack could still be being taken up by the chain rings as they are immoveable... if you hold the rear wheel and apply light tension to the cranks then see if there is any small movement in either of the freewheels... i really want this to work but i still think the freewheels need to be perfectly in sync

If the freewheel is able to move and is not engaged, it would not be locked and allowing the tension in the chain to be increased by the movement of the cranks and the chain should stay slack... until said freewheel moves far enough to lock, then the chain would deflect upward.

If only one freewheel is engaged, I would expect one chain to pull upward until the other freewheel locks and then the other chain moves up... but both chains pulled up simultaneously, which shows that both freewheels were locked into engagement.

Re: The twin-chain beast...

Be careful, if you WD those freewheels, you're going to lose most of that sound.

I like the smart patrol reference in your signature, very nice.

Yeah they are loud already... Usually I get freewheels to be louder with WD40 but that's after they are already used a bit... good point my friend! I'll leave them alone.

I'm glad someone finally got the Devo reference!
