    Mach 429 front der adjustment - advice

    The access point for the pinch bolt makes it to where you can only access if you hold the der toward the large chainring because if you allow it to relax to the i ner chainring, the pinch bolt rotates down and you cannot tighten it via the access hole in suspension link.

    any advice on how you other pivot owners make your front der adjustments?

    I've got a 4 and 5 hex key that I've cut down the short end on. Just long enough to bottom out on a socket head screw. It's great for when manufactures don't take things like this into consideration.
