SIN­GLE-SIDED SWINGARMS

RiDE (UK) - - Hands On -

Get the right tool for the job

On a sin­gle-sider there’s no wheel align­ment to worry about. You need a C-span­ner to suit your hub, and a tool to undo the hub-lock­ing fas­ten­ers on the rear­most edge of the swingarm. Loosen them, then slide the C-span­ner be­hind the rear sprocket onto the top edge of the large toothed col­lar.

Ro­tate the hub to per­fec­tion

Pull the C-span­ner down gen­tly un­til you reach the right chain ten­sion. If you over-tighten, move the C-span­ner to the un­der­side to go back. Tighten the lock­ing fas­ten­ers when you’re done. Doesn’t move? You’ll need to dis­as­sem­ble the hub assem­bly but don’t use lu­bri­cant on the hub/swingarm mat­ing faces.
