Your Fit one looks nice... why don't you get another one of it?

Personally i love the Poverty one you gave me free. It's simple and fairly light.

EDIT: Primo Pro.

cut a link out of your chain and run it slammed. and anyway its not that hard to get a chain tight without them. save some weight.

chain tensioners. waste of time effort and money. all you need is the ability to make your chain tight. Its not that challenging.

Silly Yanks.

Aussies?

probably not... most likely, it's beat to hell, and those things weigh a ton.

For $25 it's not terrible... it does weigh a metric ton though.

hahaha.. the no clear coat is because of laziness and not weight savings, at least in my case.

Can you really get a new one of those frames for $70 somewhere? damn..
