    Pics of DIY Chain Tensioners

    I thought I remember seeing a thread on this but cant locate it. I would be interested in seeing how people have come up with DIY solutions for a chain tensioner that actually work in the field (other than a full derailleur)

    Thanks,

    DIY CHAIN TENSIONER

    I've made these simple tensioners out of v-brake arms and canti arms. The trick is getting a solid chain line and a solid amount of pressure on the chain.

    Let me know if you have questions!
