Default Chain Tensioners

I've used these on the last couple of builds and what a difference it makes. No pulling on the wheel or "Walking" the chain tight..... Just a couple turns of the ratchet and and it stays put. This particular style gives you a larger surface to tighten the wheel to the frame (No need for oversized washers). They are machined to fit in the drop out.
