You know that they're serious when they have a scale that goes out to four decimal places (and/or a chemist/drug dealer)

Sorry for digressing.. the newest entry on Bikerumor's homepage has not been updated since Apr.15, I've been thinking if the site is dead or not? :? Why can't I see new articles? Removing cookies doesn't help... :noidea:

Judging from the front photo, one end of the rod jams into the lower pulley, and no tab on the derailleur's body to block the cage, I suppose the rod's only purpose is to prevent the cage from unwinding prior to installing?

Two guys were involved in that project.Thomas and Stefan. Everything is WW pure. But the most remarkable point for me is the "making" of new carbon springs. Congrats.

I suspect the bar is just to hold the springs in place so it doesn't explode everywhere.
If it really was meant to be there it would :
A- stop the jockey wheel rotating
B- might create a bit of clearance problem with the top sprocket / chain and frame
:-))

The backplate originally has a function, I'd think, no?
What keeps the chain on the upper pulley? Just those shallow teeth?
