    It is possible to fit Gilles chain adjusters for the later models to the Tuoldo.

    The reason Gilles don't list the mille or Tould is the casting that the adjusters sit in isn't straight on these models. It either warps in the welding or is just a low quality casting, in order to fit the Gilles you need to do a bit of filing/grinding to straighten the channel they sit in.

    My old Tuoldo with the Gilles fitted


    close up on the adjusters - they are RSVR/Gen 2 fitment


    Note the remains of a Galfer rear disk - they don't last long if they start binding.
