That video contains audio cyanide. Kill the music. Kill the commentary. Add subtitles. All better.

Real easy…get a laser pen flashlight, align with your front chainring and shine it at your rear hub. Now, make a nice device for the market and I’ll share the patent rights with you. Would’ve done it myself by now but my super simple magnetic laser pen doesn’t work for bike chainrings.

The easiest way is to flip the bike upside down, remove the chain from the gears, and place a framing square or some type of straight edge along the side of the chainring teeth. Lay it out against the rear cog and make adjustments, if necessary.
