Gilles TCA chain adjuster
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:10:22 AM »
Has anyone fitted the Gilles TCA chain adjuster at all or does everyone go with the Lightech ones?

I went with the Gilles ABX chain adjuster.
Not as fancy as the TCA or Lightech but looks much better imho.
I am also running a pair of their rearsets, hard to beat Gilles quality.
You should remember that its peace of mind youre after and not just a fixed machine.

I've got the TCA adjusters fitted, and frankly they're crap. they're no where as near as good as the older style ones (like the lightech) they don't have any bolt to hold them laterally to the swingarm, so you get movement when the wheels out, the adjustment is crap and then the lifters put the centre of gravity too far back when the bike is on a stand so it rolls off far too easily. i've gone back to using paddock stand bobbins.
