Strengths:    Built solid, doesn't rely on spring pressure

Weaknesses:    Really only works by pushing down on chain

Bottom Line:   
This appears to be a rebadged Gamut tensioner. I chose it because I keep reading about other people breaking springs on other designs. It pivots at the quick release nut (provided) and locks into place with the bolt that screws into the derailleur hanger. Please realize that if you try to push the chain up from underneath you can only take up maybe a half inch of chain, but can take up 1.5 to 2 inches by pushing down on the chain. I have ridden it once so far and did not experience chain skip on climbing with it pushing down for tension. The roller is noisy but I want to see if that gets better as it wears in. It also creates some noticeable drag on the system but but more so when tight and less so if the chain is a little loose. I am guessing that all of these tensioners create some drag versus a SS drivetrain w/no tensioner. I need more time with this unit to dial in the installation but it is working as intended and did not give me a problem on the trail.

Hello to all! I was wondering if anyone had opinions on putting a light chain tensioner on a Flash Carbon 3 29er. I bought this bike a couple months ago and there seems to be to much "play" in the chain when I ride. Sometimes it will even drop a gear if I'm really bouncing it around. Also any opinio ...

Chain tensioner 73mm bottom bracket external bearing, no ISCG. What works?

What chain tensioner will work and how, with a 73mm bottom bracket shell, external bearings, no ISCG tabs. I picked up a second-hand Blackspire Stinger, but when attempting to use it, when mounting it behind the BB cup, it acts as a "spacer" and therefore the non-drive side crankarm hits the BB and ...
