I saw this 5 year old post: http://www.global-flat.com/smf/index.php?topic=42452.0


This guy makes custom 3/8" wheel slammers.


I tried emailing him but got no response.


Does anyone know where else you can get 3/8 slammers or any place that might make them? Or if the guy in the link above is still operating?

a solution is to diy : I remember a member here showed pictures of tensioners he modified himself to get custom slammers.

The tensioners were that model below that flatlandfuel carries:

It seems quite easy to remove the necessary material to get the good size with a file

just modifying some tensioners is the best bet and i had the same problem
and rigged the tensioners to fit my Motel Works dropout and i guess the
black motel works frames..ambassadors do not come drilled for tensioners
as Pat and Laura of Flatland Fuel told me and hopefully Kotaro will fix that.

Ya, tensioner modification sounds like a pretty good idea. Just have to make sure the two are shaved down pretty accurately to get the perfect true.

I'm actually needing this for pitchfork xlt on a 22" street bike. Not too many fork options with 33mm dropouts right now.

I want to run 2.4 tires and it works now, but i just have to keep the tires very true. It's like 1-2mm away from the fork.

My forks happen to have decent length dropouts though, so there's room to scoot the tire out 3-4mm if i can get one of these slammer things to work.

I am sure Malo @ PIR could knock you up a pair?
