Default Re: Mounting a Chain Tensioner

Not to discourage discussion but as the dreaded tensioner and it's mount is somewhat of a safety issue - I hearty suggest checking out the link posted above.

Drilling holes and self-tapping screws a valid solution and used successfully by some - it, like all "suggestions" in that thread depends heavily on the bike in question. Depending on the gauge fastener used it could compromise the integrity of the chainstay - I'd not be comfortable doing that to my aluminum build for example.
