Default Re: My VERY useful Chain Tensioner MOD!

I found my particular design to virtually eliminate the possibility of mis-alignment upon re-entry on the top side of the drive sprocket, but even better, it reduces almost all slack/tight on the revolution of the chain, on the top side, preventing any possibility of chain binding into the drive sprocket.

Finally, all 'slapping'/ lateral movement is eliminated when jumping off curbs or over rougher terrain.

Just my two cents.

I know I'm sacrificing some on the smoothness/efficiency/power, but I like the piece of mind.
