    half links

    Instead of buying an accentric bottom bracket, I am thinking of using half links to make it snug. Would this work?

    Depending on the gearing and chainstay length you might even need to use a half-link with an eccentric BB converter as they don't have enough throw to take up one whole link of slack.
    You'll only need one half link of course - whether it'll work for you without any other tensioning method depends whether you get lucky or not and how fussy you are about having a perfectly tensioned chain.
