I is for idler

An idler is a pulley-like device, used to take up chain slack. I've uesd one on a single-speed dirt / jump bike build. They're great for stopping chain-slap and 'i'dling along with this 'i' in the series.

The 'Lugged' letters you're welcome to download but I'll be developing this as a font myself, so usage is limited to decorative application only - I'll release this typeface with some form of open licence once I'm done and post it here.
