J is for jockey-pulley

Those two little cogged wheels on your rear derailer? The one at the top, that's the jockey-pulley and it's the one that does all the work, guiding the chain onto the sproket you selected. So, now you know.

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.
