    Banshee Amp Chain Tensioner

    Hey there, I recently got me a Banshee Amp and figured it would allow for installing a chain tensioner in its rear. Is the Amp supposed to come with a factory Chain Tensioner? Haven't found any in the box. If not - is there any chain tensioner which is compatible with the frame and which is worth buing @builttoride?

    Check the bag/box that has the derailleur hanger thingy in it. There should be a couple of small grub screws, one a bit longer than the other, that will thread into a small hole in the frame that's inside the rear track end. Once you get a chain length that you're happy with, screw in the grub screw until it won't let the rear hub slide forward in the track end. It's a little fiddly, so grab a beer and take your time. If that doesn't work for you, any chain tug with a long screw [the shorter ones used on some BMX bikes may not have enough range] should work as a chain tensioner.
