Some use the idler, some don't. It depends on the person and the build. I've used it on the two I've built so far, because I need the drive chain the clear the chainstays of the bikes themselves. I may not need it on one of my upcoming builds, just depends on where the chain runs.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
