Default Re: Chain tensioner

I want to see if I understand what is happening here: is your chain-tensioner and guide wheel "in-line" with the chainstay that it is mounted to? - ie. the same chainstay that runs from the wheel hub to the bottom bracket at the seat post? Or did you twist the chain-tensioner's own bracket a little so that the guide wheel runs in line with the drive chain and the rear wheel itself?

The drive chain does not run in the same exact line as the chainstay your tensioner is mounted to.
