Anyone have a pic of one installed! thanks
You will need to cut a large chunk out of the inner chaincase and run a belt drive

I would think that a properly cut chaincase could be carefully re-sealed, but yes you would need a belt drive to eliminate the need to adjust the shaft spacing.

They are great for racing so probably don't need sealing

but you said...
"These are ok for racing but not good for longevity in commoz opinion
And that is backed up by my experience of using one of these on the road"

So I suggested it could be properly sealed. THAT was in reference to the "longevity" bit. Apart from contamination by road grit, what other longevity-related issue could there be?

They fracture at the top when you start putting thousands of miles on them
Commoz had the same problem that I had
He concluded it's probably caused by metal fatigue
Mine didn't last 10,000 miles
