Smile Re: Huffy Cranbrook Project

Here is how I did the Idler/tensioner on my Huffy, been holding up perfectly since 2010, just a piece of flat Aluminum an idler wheel I made up from a skateboard wheel, a couple bolts, some Nyloc nuts and if you'll notice I drill a small hole through bracket and into the frame tume and install a small sheet metal screw with some thread locker on it, a guaranteed solution for stopping the bracket from rolling over into wheel spokes and it does not compromise strength of the frame at all having the single 1/8" hole in that frame tube.
