Default Re: Would this work as a chain tensioner?

There are only twp ways I can imagine that would definitely keep the chain tensioner solidly mounted.

One is to have a slotted bracket welded to the frame stay, then bolt on a skateboard wheel.

The other is to bolt on a simple 10" flat metal bar across the frame and seat stay. Then bolt on the skateboard wheel.

Either way would guarantee that the tensioning assembly would NEVER lean into the wheelspokes.
