    OK have any more info , what are you going to tension the chain with? hope those aren't standard sized Allen wrenches.

    The Paul tensioner is said to be quite good as well. It's got a very strong spring, apparently. I wouldn't worry about that.

    I think you didn't install the tensioner right, i think it has to go through both jockey wheels and not just push down on the chain , this doesn't provide enough wrap on your chain

    i still think its wrapped wrong, would I have seen before is that it goes under the jockey wheel farthest away from the crank arm and above the one closer to the crank arm. if that's how the manual suggested to ride with it go ahead but i just wanted to caution you

    he's got it right according to the pictures on Paul's site. It often looks different because most pictures I've seen had more chain slack that it was taking up.

    If you want I can try to ask Paul though... pretty sure I saw him on the trail on Sunday
