Default Re: motor out of box,,, any cause for alarm

Like I said earlier just drill a small hole through the tensioner and into the frame tube and insert a small sheet metal screw and problem solved with chance of tensioner rotating into spokes, very simple mod that is much better in my opinion than anything else you can do because under the right conditions any clamped device can move but if it is securely clamped and also pinned with that screw going through bracket and frame, then it is as secure as it can be and you can have complete peace of mind about it....

Pic below shows a tensioner I made for my second build and even though it is very secure with how it is attached above and below, I still anchored it with that small screw, with this mod it will NOT move ever....unless that screw is broken.
