Default Re: The *BEST* Solution for "THE" tensioner/pulley

Having no pensioner would be nice no doubt but don't forget that no matter how tight your chain is it still may need a tensioner. Ive built 10 bikes now and some have output sprockets that are almost a half inch out of line with the rear sprocket and the tensioner fixes this. It would be a real pain in the butt to fix this problem without it. For the record, i like having a spring tensioner but i have no problem with the stock one. Besides having to bend some to get them to line up there are little to no problems once set up.
