    a picture is worth many words, this setup allows for precise adjustment and alignment:

    a clamp-on bracket on the stays would work very nicely, too.

    Nice pic. Seems a lil oil is in order for your chain and a new rear tire might be needed.LOL

    yer not gonna believe this...

    we have a unique sand up here, a very fine (abrasive) dust. so...i learned that if i keep my pedal-chain oiled it collects a wet gritty slurry that wears the chain faster than letting it rust a bit. a small amount of 3-in-1 is all i use, and rarely.

    the tire is a "hutchinson acrobat"...and just barely worn in...see the closeup:

    but, i do have new tires set aside, will change 'em out right before the rally then on to bonneville.
