this has probably already come forth in another thread, but i can't seem to find it.
so, what kind of nut/nut-chain tug is this?
"Bullet Spur Chain Tensioner" (http://www.danscomp.com/cgi-bin/hazel.cgi?action=DETAIL&item=440006)
BTW, I've got a set and they're not very nice. They work decently well and are nice and cheap though.

I think that's a pretty common BMX one ...
Danscomp has them for 9.99 - look in the parts section

here's a couple pics in case you'll be mounting on semi-horizontal forward facing dropouts:
i love those...but they would never ever work on a surly frame

MKS chain tensioners are the best in my opinion. They are durable and strong (NJS certified) and have a design that is simple and easy to use. I can micro adjust my chain tension perfectly with them and achieve perfect tension. They usually cost 30 dollars, which may seem expensive but I think they are well worth it. The BMX ones definitely are not as easy to use, plus they are for BMX, cheaper though they may be.
