Just found this thread, Awesome stuff
Here's my Supreme VIP Park with a SB One Boner, Blackspire Snaggle tooth ring & Gusset cog 30/12.
next,possibly is a Reverse short block rear hub. I'd been thinking of SS DH for way too long an gave up 4X so, went SS on my DMR Bolt. I REALLY like the different riding style of finding speed an flow from the line an not braking in stead of mashing the pedals an gears. Only had the car park test ATM cos grown up shit but, CANNOT wait to get this to a hill

Beautiful!

Bro, I have exactly the same issue. I've got a Session 8 with an X7 derailleur and my chain keeps twitching. I haven't been able to solve the issue yet but i did confirm that the aligment is good and the chain actually gets on top of the sprocket tip. Like if it would be to short. I would like the derailleur to be closer to the sprocket but it's not possible and I've ordered a Rohloff tensioner to see if it helps.
Keep me posted if you find a solution.

sounds like it's trying to ghost shift. Try extended limit screws on both the upper and lower

Nope, won't work. The only thing I can do is to adjust it sideways with the short pice of wire I have that usually goes up to the shifter or bring it closer or further away from the sprocket. I don't think its close enough now but even if I replace the adjuster screw with a longer one it will start to press on the wrong surface at the derailleur. Whenever I start to pedal, the chain climbs up on the sprocket.
Old mechs can flap about a bit no matter how limited off they are. A quick fix I found was to stick a couple of zip ties around the parallelogram to stop it from trying to shift. Getting a proper tensioner is a good idea though

Cheers! though I need to change the gearing to 36/14. the 30/12 has too much kick back Frown
