    One is fun, especially if it's squishy. (X-post from TBC forum)

    Singlespeed Bottlerocket...fun stuff! Still waiting on my front brake and DH tires. Probably going to replace the seat, get a gold seatpost clamp and maybe throw some gold rims on there someday. Everything worked out very nicely with the drivetrain which was the one thing I was worried about. Oh, and it needs a cleaning, the guy I bought the frame from sent some Utah dirt with it at no charge:biggrin:.

    That's dope. Bottlerockets are sweet.

    Specs? I think I see a Profile chainring.

    Sick. That's the best looking tensioner I've ever seen. Does it work as good as it looks like it would?

    It is a very nice tensioner, it combines the immobile upper roller of the rennen rollenlager with a spring loaded pulley allowing for the FS chain growth. It could use some improvement such as more chainline adjustability and a better spring. I took the spring out of my surley singleator and put a spacer and a washer between the upper roller and the body of the tensioner, this works much better for my purposes.
