    Are they worth it, do they make wheel changing and chain tensioning much easier?
    What would people recommend?
    Any for sale?

    Lightech are best in class

    Id be interested in this. How does it work, if its keeping the caliper in normal position you cant get the wheel out past it.

    The screw on the adjuster will go the way through to the caliper bracket.. I had a fast frank setup the same on my zx10 didnt rate it very much. The underslung caliper helps alot in wheel changes

    I’d agree especially given that you have to supply the caliper bracket.
