    Anybody use a Forge Tensioner?

    I am looking at tensioners and these guys make a pretty cool one, plus they are touting a 15% discount right now.

    www.forge-mtb.com

    Question(s) are:

    I heard something about them going belly up or what not a while ago. True? Not true?

    They are Brits and don't have online sales, only phone orders. Success with this?

    Do you like the thing? Looks like it doesn't have any chainline adjustability like a Singleator, but locks in place like a Convert. Plus it looks cool and not every kid on the block has one.

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them. Thanks,

    Pedro

    They didn't go 'belly-up'. Forge are primarily a motorsports company and the guy who was handling the mtb side left and there was no-one else to carry it on. All the mtb gear was sold off last year.

    There was word that the guy who left might try to start elsewhere but no news yet
