Chain tensioners are not critical, in fact many bikes with rear facing dropouts don't use them, but they are nice and should be on a proper DL-1 IMO.

OP, forget about the pros, they are on a totally different level - they can cruise for hours at speeds most of us could only sustain for a few minutes.

In 20+ years I've seen broken collarbones, femurs, scapulas, wrists, fingers, but never a pelvis (except when hit by a car).

Shimano 3D72, B&M Cyo Premium, B&M Topline Plus. Worked flawlessly for 20,000kms so far. There must be some drag (the power has to come from somewhere) but I don't notice it.

I've reused spokes many times and never had a problem.
That said, I prefer to use new spokes on new wheels.

I'd add a brace to to that bracket, from the screw holding the hitch to the chainstay, like a coaster brake arm.
