Default Re: To tension or not to tension, that is the question?

if you've got the clearance and install everything correctly, i think no tensioner is the way to go.

i've ridden with them and without them, and in my experience it's a smoother ride without it. and it definitely looks cleaner.

(edit) i've never had "axle creep" on any of my bikes, but i upgrade the washers and axle nuts, make sure they're tight, and that my chain's not too tight where it's gonna try to yank my wheel off. and, actually, i think my motor will move before my wheel does.
