    No you did not put redline tensioners on a don walker frame!!! That's like putting 14" dummies on a Ferrari. C'mon Ernesto, show you care!

    Those tensioners suck actually. I bought a two pack, and one already broke while I was installing it on the other bike.

    Recommend me some.

    Here's more history, in chronological order:

    Born from my mom's love chute in San Antonio, TX

    Moved to Mexico City at 2 years old (my dad's a retired brewmaster, so because of his job, we moved a lot)

    In Mexico, we lived in Mexico City (wikipedia the rest) Coatepec (Veracruz), Toluca (Edo. de Mexico), Fortin de las Flores (Veracruz), San Carlos (Sonora).

    Then back to San Antonio.

    ISuckAtRiding has a company called "Homebrewed Components" and makes some nice stuff.

    I have a ring he made and it is very nice, very round, and a bazzillion anodizing choices.
