    Wanted: lighter chain tensioner

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a chain tensioner?

    I don't care who makes it, but I'd like it to be lighter than the Rohloff chain tensioner--this would be for a lightweight hardtail used for a long commute (with climbing) on a gravel trail.

    (FWIW, I will also lose a bit of weight by switching from a Speedbone to a Monkeybone.)

    Cheers

    Paul Melvin is 76gm, the lighter chain tensioner for Rohloff. I've no experience with it, but it should be fine...

    Thanks, I will have a look. I'm in Canada, but the seller might ship to me... Sorry it didn't work out for you to get it shipped to you.

    Cheers

    Bah! I wasn't paying attention so I got outbid on Ebay. The other Buyer got a used Paul Melvin for 42 bucks. So no review for a while, alas...
