    Which frame?

    I was planning to build my diSSent and sell my John Henry. Since there seems to be no interest in the JH, I am now thinking if I should build it instead of the diSSent. Only thing thing with the JH, it has vertical dropouts so I'd have to run a tensioner, which I guess isn't a huge deal, but the diSSent has horizontal, so it would be just a little simpler. So, just wondering if anyone had any thoughts?

    Yeah, thought about that too or an Eccentric Bottom Bracket if it would work with my frame. Just price prohibitive at the moment but certainly something I could upgrade to later if I do end up building the JH into a SS.

    Or just use a Blackspire stinger as your chain tensioner. Behind the BB, so won't ruin the aesthetics of a SS too much. Then buy the ENO when funds allow.

    Not the intended usage, but have seen it used well (and used it) for SS chain tensioning.
