    You mean besides things like hite-rites and shark-fins? Stuff like the wacky plugs for seatposts, More-On bottle cage adapters, and Joe Murray Combo Cages? Cool Tool Seatpost QRs? Shimano's TopPull derailleur adapter? Those sorts of things (and yes I own examples of all those) ?

    This is odd...
    A gift from a friend.
    Anybody have any info?...
    Some sort of chain tensioner, highly machined and complicated.

    I got one of these on an AMP I picked up a couple years ago. It converts a top pull to bottom pull? I always thought it was an AMP made part as it was obviously machined. Bike's long gone but I still have that thing in my odd parts drawer.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Yes... one sec i'll dig up the photo. It lets you run housing straight to the front derailleur (as if it were a v-brake) with the adapter mounting to the usual cable anchor point, and the cable anchoring lower down on the frame someplace... usually mounted into a fender braze on hole, or the pulley-braze on hole on the seattube.

    As to the TWP Chain Tensioner, its just that... tensions your chain, mounts to the chainstay, was an often seen tensioner type on DH bikes in the mid-90s before everyone switched to single-ring setups with guide-pulley based tensioners.

    That widget came on two nos LeTech Suntour front derailleurs I have. I used one for a clunker I built a few years ago.

    Yeah, I'd like to see a better shot of this too.
