Default Re: New Electra Bike Build Update

here are some pics of a tensioner I built using a skateboard wheel and a brake arm onto my stock tensioner clamp. the first 2 pics are just a picture of the tensioner, the other are views of me holding it down allowing slack in the chain and the other pic is of releasing tensioner (puting tension back on the chain) this is on one of my Mountain bikes, a trek 830 crome-moly frame. you just cant get that sprocket true dead center and the tensioner takes out the bad vibes that the sprocket creates. there is a simple solution to the fix though. the tensioner works really good, I put it in a 50 mile run the day of the rally and it held good. you can see the arm working up and down as your riding. it works good and I hope you like it.
