Default My VERY useful Chain Tensioner MOD!

OK, so, with a spring loaded chain tensioner, the problem is when starting, the TOP end of the chain can go too slack, and bind/lock the wheel.

Well, I added an UPWARD, spring tensioner to it, and problem.

Whether on start up, or at speed, when going slower, downhill, it keeps the TOP side of the chain alligned/tight.

The upward, spring-loaded tensioner handles lateral movement, AND tension, soooo.. no chain slip/lock. It works WITH the downward motion of startup, and pushes UP on the topside chain to keep it tight/alligned!


Working good so far....

Happy riding!
