    New tool just delivered...

    Took a walk to the market and this was getting delivered right as I came home. My fried Aric @thetoolery came up w/ these and had a batch made. Takes the place of 4 plastic tools and will last a lifetime. Mine anyway.

    It is a pizza cutter? It looks kinda like a pizza cutter.
    Given his penchant for nicknames, and his aversion to reading, I've decided to shorten Donald J. Trump to it's essence: Dump*

    I was "social distancing" before it was cool.

    SRAM make 4 different 'tools' for different derailleurs. This one does the job for every derailleur. I'm sure there are YT videos about how they work. You put the semi-round ridge against the upper pulley and rotate the tool towards the cassette teeth while the chain is on the large cog. The line(s) determine proper b-tension.

    That is a very nice tool, and belongs in every shop. However, the real solution to poor Sram shifting is to run Shimano 12 speed.

    Thanks for the info. A good looking addition to the toolbox. I've never seen an AXS in the flesh so I just guessed based on the markings.

    It's also a beer bottle opener.

    I'll be darned. I always just set the B-screw so the upper pulley is as close as possible without the teeth hitting the largest cog.

    On all of the recent SRAM stuff it needs to be much further away.

    Good to know, thanks.

    Of course, I don't see myself adopting a proprietary & incompatible freehub standard anytime soon.

    I thought it was 12mm from the largest cog?

    For which cog/derailleur? It's different for all of them. Older SRAM rear derailleurs used 6mm for a long time.
