Default Re: Should I use this?

I will never use one. You can run an aluminum strap from the seat stay to the chain stay and support them to prevent them from rotating into the spokes though. Someone on this forum or the "other" forum had a photo of one that they made. It was simply zip-tyed to the frame (2 on each end of the aluminum strap) and they replaced the bolt for the tensioner wheel with a longer one that would pass through the tensioner, tensioner wheel and support strap. They used a custom filed to fit spacer in between the strap and tensioner wheel to allow full tightening of the bolt through the whole assembly so everything was good and tight. Just be sure that the wheel will still roll freely.
