Inspired Arcade Micro Chain Tug

- Replacement 10mm chain tug to fit Inspired Arcade frame. (May fit other frames - please ask us to check if you are unsure, but should work well with any 10mm horizontal dropout where the slot is of reasonable length, top and bottom dimensions are equal lengths and the dropout slot is wider than that outer diameter of the chain tug itself (22mm), though a longer M4 bolt may be required. See additional pictures for more info.)
- CNC machined from high grade stainless steel.
- Spring washer under the head of the adjustment bolt ensures it will never shake loose and fall out.
- 5mm of adjustment provides optimum tension over recommended chain stretch range.
- Sold singly.
- Supplied fully packaged with Inspired sticker.
- Available only in the dark grey finish shown in the first two images.
- Weight: 12g.

Questions

Darren

Hi there, I want to know if it'll fit my fixie build. Just wondering how wide is the ring? Thanks!

Hi Darren - The main body of the tug is 22mm diameter, with a 10mm axle hole. Thanks, Mark

Lewis

Hi, just wondering if this would fit a neon wing 20" frame? Thanks, lewis

Hi Lewis - Theoretically these should fit the Wing, but it's unlikely they'd line your wheel up correctly. They have very limited adjustment so might not be much help. Some good, notched snail cams and some fresh axle bolt washers (along with plenty of grease on your axle bolts) should help your wheel hold in place if you're having issues with it sliding in the dropouts at present. Thanks, Mark

Will this fit on Because Simple 24" trials frame 2012 or should get different one since , im using snail cams but they are not too reliable.

Hi Edgars - The Arcade tugs have minimal adjustment so you may find something like the Gusset Kojak or Trialtech Race tugs are more suitable. Snail cams should generally be fairly reliable. Once your axle bolts are tightened they should take the load, not the snail cams, so it suggests that they might be the problem. I would recommend taking the bolts out, cleaning them and cleaning inside the axle. When re-assembling, use plenty of grease as this helps you torque them up much more. Also, check your axle bolt washers. If the underside of the washer is smooth, or if the serrations on them have worn, getting new, serrated axle bolt washers (e.g. the Trialtech axle bolt washers) will help them grip your frame much better, and keep everything in place. Thanks, Mark

Will this work with the Alias frame? Also, does the axle diameter matter? I have a hub with 12mm axles that steps down to 10mm for the dropouts.

Hi Jeffrey - These tugs should fit the Alias frame fine. In terms of axle sizes, as long as your axle is 10mm inside the dropout then it shouldn't be an issue as these will sit on the outside of the frame (where your axle bolt will be 10mm or less) rather than the inside (where your axle will be 12mm). Thanks, Mark

Finally!

Posted by James

Ive been waiting for a product like this for years. Ive made similar tugs, but this one is made of steel so it should with stand years of abuse. Tarty sent it out asap as per usual. Installs in a flash and holds tight. I have it on my Breath Mod with super short dropouts and it fits perfect. Goodbye snail cam! So happy.

Hi James - It's good to hear that the Arcade tug is working well for you, especially on a completely different frame to the one it was designed for! Thanks for the review.
