Slipstream Idler kit – Part 2
5/12/09 Update: I can’t recommend this idler kit for the Slipstream. I have done a bit of riding with them now and have to say I am not impressed. The concept is good but the reality is increased noise and an idler that doesn’t seem to follow the chain line very well. This is an expensive upgrade without significant benefits.
This is a continuation of an earlier posting, TerraCycle’s Long bikes Slipstream Idler Kit.
So what is in TerraCycle’s Longbikes Slipstream Idler Kit? The answer is simple, 2 idlers, some hardware, and installation instructions.
Here is the return idler with mounting hardware.

The installation instructions look simple and clear.
Note: These scans of the instructions are big files and very slow to download so please be patient.
I’ll follow up on how the installation goes and effect on ride when weather permit.
