Thanks Ideate for the idea


How's yours Zingle Speed holding up? I think I need to refine the process next time and figure out a way to still allow some adjustment.

A detailed instruction of how yall made your zee derailer look and perform like that would be greatly appreciated.
Not detailed, but gives an understanding of what to disassemble

I am trying this myself. The sawing is done but how do you get those axles out? With a hammer and a punch? The axle that is sawed in two seems especially tricky.

[edit] : i figured it out. I sawed that axle in two places and hammered the remaining part out with a 3mm pin punch like these:
The other axle is reused to connect the remaining parts of the derailleur together again.

Here is mine, just finished putting it together with a SB One chain tensioner.

Edit: Couple better pictures.

Yes but you get what you pay for! I will ride this tomorrow in the bike park and can comment on the ride then, but the build quality and ease of set up is astronomical high

Yes I think so. In the "manual" it shows 14T as max and when you purchase from their website you only get the option of 13 T or 14T

SB and their price is the original reason I made one from a Zee derailleur. Only difference is I get a clutch but they've made one with a clutch now (on their insta).

Hi has anyone tried or using one of the cheap Alfine tensioners if so are they any good for the price or should I just go with a zee setup

I've had mine for over a season and it hasn't broken yet. The only thing I don't like about it is how long the upper arm is.
