good idea

not worth it,especially adding in the shipping,since dans does it by price and not size. a 350 dollar crank costs more to ship than bars. larger,but cheaper. dans doesnt do it (or any other mailorder Ive found) on size,like they should.

anyway,you should try slamming your wheel,see if that works. You may want to try using a half link chain as well. I got unlucky,I need a half link to slam, some people (like me on my old frame) are lucky and can just break your old chain and not have to replace it.

I have the slammers and i love them. If you run pegs be sure to get the adapter as well. Also if you are going to get them when you measure use an allen key.

They are really helpful if you run brakes as your wheel stays in the same spot all of the time.

I have profile tensioners. I chose them mainly cos they were the lightest I could find (have a race bike), but I'm not too sure I like the way they work. Rather than hooking over the dropout and then pulling the axle back with a bolt under tension, the bolts press on to the back of the dropout and then push back so they're under compression.

If you imagine you have a hole in the road with something stuck down it, it's more stable if you lie down on the road and grab hold of whatever it is than if you reach down and then try to stand up with it - the profiles do the latter
