    Newbie SS chaintensioner question?

    I know this question has probably been asked a 1000 times, but what in your guys opinion is the best chain tensioner to use. I was thinking of getting a DMR tension seeker. I have a 32 to 16 ratio. Thanks!

    I would assume ...

    his frame is not SSpecific, and so he can't get appropriate chain tension with the vertical drop outs. Tensioners are pretty well the easiest way to remedy the solution. And the Rollenlager is very discreet...
