    Tugnuts?

    Do you need the Surly tugnuts With the horizontal DO's? I'm getting a 1 X 1 frame and I trying to figure if I will need a tensioning device.

    How tight should my chain tension be? This is my first time without using a springy tensioner.

    Thank for the help

    If your using a quick release wheel I recommend them - bolt on wheels usually have no problem.

    Hope that helps

    I agree

    For $25 you get a nice bottle opener and it helps set things up. You only need 1 on the drive side.As far as how much tension, spin the crank backwards by hand. I would say you want about 1 1/2 to 2 turns of spin with a pretty good throw.
