    Greasing Up A Tranny Q?

    Just re-greasing my tranny slot, the guide is simple but one quick few questions..

    quick yes no answers please.

    1. Grease only the vertical matted walls?
    2. Dont grease the upper and lower walls, were the slot fits to the fornt triangle?
    3. Grease around the bolt and through the thread that passes through the frame?
    4. Anti seize the bolt?
    5. If geared, run the torque to 12ftlbs and makesure the triagle is right up close to the front triangle?
    6. Ride Really Fast! :-)

    Thanks lads

    Slot Machine:
    The slot machine is the lower junction between the front and rear ends of the frame. If
    you plan to use gears, just slide the stays all the way forward, tighten the main chain stay bridge
    bolt to 12 ft lbs, and youíre done.
    If youíre going to set the bike up as a single speed, there are a few more steps. If the
    frame is new, all of the steps in this paragraph have already been done for you during
    assembly. With the frame apart, paint a thin film of FSA or Tacx carbon assembly compound
    on the vertical clamping surfaces on the outside of the slot machine. Slide the rear end onto
    the frame, then assemble and install the upper pivot shaft and bolts. Smatter a healthy dose of
    grease on the inside of the slot machine shaft (on the threads) and insert it through the slot
    machine. Assemble the gray slot machine bolt with the small steel washer, followed by the
    larger aluminum washer. Thread the bolt in, but donít tighten it to fighting specs just quite yet.
    After building the complete bike, put it on the ground with the slot machine bolt still loose.
    Push down firmly on the seat, and the chain will become taught. Now youíre ready to torque
    down the slot machine bolt, which requires a good torque wrench. Start by torquing the bolt to
    15 ft lbs. Thatís a lot, so use a good, fresh 5mm Allen wrench bit. A ball end bit isnít going to
    work for this amount of torque.
    Hold the rear brake and give the right pedal a swift kick forward. If this causes the chain
    to become noticeably slacker, thatís ok, as the frame may need to complete its break-in cycle.
    Loosen the bolt, re-tension the chain, and torque the slot machine bolt back to 15 ft lbs. Your
    slot machine will now stay tight, but we recommend that you take something better than a multi
    tool on the first ride just to be safe.
