Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

this has probably already come forth in another thread, but i can't seem to find it.
so, what kind of nut/nut-chain tug is this?

BTW, I've got a set and they're not very nice. They work decently well and are nice and cheap though.

I think that's a pretty common BMX one ...

Danscomp has them for 9.99 - look in the parts section

MKS chain tensioners are the best in my opinion. They are durable and strong (NJS certified) and have a design that is simple and easy to use. I can micro adjust my chain tension perfectly with them and achieve perfect tension. They usually cost 30 dollars, which may seem expensive but I think they are well worth it. The BMX ones definitely are not as easy to use, plus they are for BMX, cheaper though they may be.
