Chain alignment

Postby Sportbiker » Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:08 pm

Rode out this morning only to discover the front tire was low again. Interestingly the right handers were diving and the left handers resisting, so I know the rear is aligned. Shagz, does that alignment laser have any name on it? The only one I see out there is ~100 which seems like a hella lot for a little laser. Actually considering the Proaligner ruler thingie.
Shitty planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine.

Profi Laser C.A.T. -- It was about $80ish when I bought it a few years back, IIRC. It may seem spendy for "just a little laser", but not really when you remember that it's a laser whose optics and the back of the tool are set up to be in precise alignment. I think tolerance is supposed to be something like 0.05%.

Be sure you're looking for the dot model as well...there's a model with a line laser that was significantly more expensive.

I got it from Mid-West Sportbikes. You might try giving them a call and see if they can still get them.

Edit: also found on Amazon for just under $80: http://www.amazon.com/Luster-Care-Chain ... 000WK5FAS/
With enough profanity, you can accomplish anything.

Thanks, I was afraid that'd be your answer. Its the ONLY laser solution I could find.
