    Sillgey Piccolo Chain Tensioners

    Can anyone help me find a part for my Sillgey Piccolo frame? I'm including an old (and pretty terrible) photo of the frame, but it shows the little holes where I believe the chain tensioners screws were. I have no idea what they're even supposed to look like, or if there is anything I can use as a replacement. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    This page shows what the new ones look like (just scroll down a bit).

    If the hole in your frame is threaded, a bolt would work to push the axle, just use a lock nut to keep it in place.

    If the hole is not threaded, then probably the width of the slots will be bigger than the axle diameter and you will need to use axle carrier like in the photo.

    You might try contacting Sillgey.

    Thanks for the help. I've already contacted Sillgey (numerous times) and haven't had any responses. The Piccolo v2 frame in your pics are awesome, and I really wish the v1 style frame used the same tensioners. They are definitely threaded I believe. I just want to know what they originally used in there.

    Hopefully someone else will chime in with more info and better yet a photo.

    You might also try to post this in the Single Speed/ Fixed Gear forum. There may be a similar frame that that used that same fork end (which isn't necessarily a mini velo).

    good luck and please keep us posted to let us know what solution you come up with.
