Default Easy custom tensioner for steel frames

Cut the slotted portion off the stock kit tensioner and welded it on the frame.
Much more reliable and spoke-friendly!

Chain seems to run a bit quieter as well as tracking onto the rear sprocket much better.
Plus it's bulletproof.
(and free)
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
