    New question here. Is anyone using a derailleur as a chain tensioner? Please let me see some Pics

    I was wondering if anyone is using a derailleur for a tensioner. If it is working well, how would you justify buying an ENO hub?

    If you are using one please let me see some pictures. So far it is the best tensioner performance wise. No chain skips at all under power.

    Any thoughts or Pics?

    I see you both use both of the pulleys on the derailer. Did you ever try with one? my derailer has so much tension on it that the second pulley is not needed.
