    Made Me a Chain Tensioner from a sram Red Rear deraileur

    I had a new sram red rear derailleur with a broken spring , so I shaved off the barrel adjuster and made it in to a trick tensioner , it will go nice with my full carbon fork and new carbon xo brakes.

    Wow, I'd say that's a quite expensive tensioner. I used to use an old Alivio derailleur as a tensioner, if that's comparable.

    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.
