Transition Covert - Large - Carbon Wheels

$2900 USD
Frame and Reverb seatpost purchased new in the summer of 2012. Most other parts purchased new in 2013. Brand new, zero miles, on the entire drivetrain - derailleur, cassette, narrow wide chainring, chain and shifter. Brand new, zero miles, Easton Haven carbon handlebar. Fork stantions have zero scratches and the lowers have only a few very minor scuffs. Pushed rp23 kashima purchased new fall of 2013 has seen very little hours. Rear shock tuned and built specifically for this bike feels great (very smooth and controlled). The Easton Haven Wheels purchased summer of 2013. Hubs are smooth and carbon rims are perfectly true. Due to injury the bike sat unused for half of last year and got out only and handful of times this past fall/winter. The bike is clean, tight, and solid. Carefully mechanic maintained. A few scuffs and chips in the paint but overall very good condition. Thanks for looking.

Screw VOD. That might be VOY... not even messing around. That's just pure art right there.

Oneup Components 42-tooth Cog for Ten-Speed Cassettes - Reviewed
You certainly have an interesting point about chain length. With all due respect I hope your wrong, as i've already ordered a one up cog to give a spin. I'm hoping a clutch derailleur can handle the extra length and tame the inevitable slop.

Care to elaborate on the NOT? I still love the idea of getting a heavier bike up rough climbs with the simplicity of a 1x drivetrain. Whats NOT to love here? Not a dig, just curious to hear from such vast experience.

Dude, is there any chance I can get the exact dimensions for your little gem so I can make one in the workshop while I am at sea? My wife said my Zee has turned up at home and I want to make the block to match yours so I can have it ready to go???

@reebs - The washer is .25 thick (height) with a slot filed down to .236 thick. None of the measurements relate to the width. You do however want the slot to be in line with the stock slot of the derailleur.

The lip is part of the stock XTR derailleur. It does give the square brass nut some nice purchase so it doesn't rotate when you tighten the cable down. 6mm is the magic number but the cable needs to stay lined up with the stock line pull. I originally started this mod with a stack of washers at first and quickly found when the cable inevitably rotated away from the stock pull direction the pull ratio was off and the shifting suffered.

@ A300hp - I was pretty psyched it was so successful. And just for the record, this was not my original idea. Steevoo on MTBR pointed me in the right direction here. His specs were spot on. He deserves all the credit for this one. Yes - the drivetrain is sram 9spd aside from the rear derailleur.
