I'm considering trying to build an older Superfly into a SS. What sort of chain tensioner would be the best to use?
'Best' is a very subjective term! Best for you will certainly not be best for someone else. There are many ways to do it.fallzboater said:I'm considering trying to build an older Superfly into a SS. What sort of chain tensioner would be the best to use?
Maybe we should just convert the one you're currently using as a road bike into a SS. I know you want to try it.kosmo said:Probably worth cross-posting on the SS forum. If nothing else, the e-fisticuffs that break out will be entertaining.
That does look good, the Yess YTR-B tensioner. My only concern is that this is a much dirtier part of the bike than at the rear mech hanger.mello211 said:the clean look of how monogod did his with the tensioner up front. i raced my superfly as a ss for 1 season by using a surly tensioning upwards with a kmc 9sp. chain and a blackspire ring up front........never had a problem.
