My new custom made one of a kind chain tensioners for my ss29er

^ I'd have guessed chick once upon a time, but with the kids these days and wearing skinny girls pants(as in actually bought in the girls department), cutting themselves, and pink being Really "cool", I can't begin to understand some of the things they do.

In any case, OP, they do look like nicely made pieces. Tell your friend "good job" on those.

I had something like that in the 60s. Interesting design, not sure I have the "balls" to sport a pair.
