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.

He only had some DMR that were very colour full and a bit too "hip hop" for me. I'm using 90s titanium frame for this project so I'd li ... Read More »

Chain tensioner = stiff shock?

after miles upon miles of obnoxious chain slap, I decided to put the oem chain tensioner on my BMC fourstroke. Now the shock seems super stiff (i've got it at 60PSI, and its still super harsh). Is that normal? I'm guessing its messing w/ the linkage...:confused:Read More »

Chain tensioner vs. chain stay

I have a 2013 GT Sensor 9r Elite. I just bought it the other day and took it out yesterday to hit some trails. The first thing I noticed was the chain slap. I am wondering what is better, a Chain tensioner or a chain stay. Am I correct that a chain tensioner will really only work properly if I ... Read More »
