Chain tensioners that work w/Redline Monocog dropouts??

Hey all,


if you've seen the Redline Monocog's dropouts, you'll know they are slightly burly and peculiar. I have tried to use two different chain tensioners (of which one was a BMX type), and they just don't engage the ends of the dropouts correctly, and don't stay straight (parallel to the chainline) and fall out of position.

Of course, I can obviate to the problem by torquing the locknuts like a gorilla(tm) but I don't want to do that as I would prefere to preserve the pain on the dropouts to some extent. Also, having the chain tensioners keep the rear axle in the correct position has other advantages as well.

So people, propose me a chain tensioner that will sit CORRECTLY on the rear dropouts of the Redline Monocog. Thank you!!




EDIT: alternatively or in addition, could someone tell me which chain tensioners are monuted on this Monocog:

and where can one buy them?

Thanks, but the Tuggnut would NOT work. Plus, overpriced as heck.

Luckily, I already ordered the Redline chain tensioners - found at Danscomp for a reasonable price. Bought a couple of chainring adapter rings while I was at it.

I did not leave a comment, pure info.

OEM= original equipment manufacturer

Google:redline chain tugs- you wanted to know who made them and where to get them.

Tugs- and you learned a new word.

You're Welcome!=snarky

you mentioned nothing about wanting a bargain

I thought of surly, because it sounds like you need:

ok your finished

(sorry couldn't resist, AGAIN!)

see? snarky= 3 irritating smiley thingies and a really lame pun
