    Bling Bling Chain tugs

    I'm looking to find some cool chain tugs.. well, perhaps just one or two. I'm getting them as a birthday present.. a little over due.

    So, what's out there, what's good, what didn't work and what looks nice?
    Regards,

    I have some Surly tugs. They look like crap. I like MKS tugs, but the screw inside breaks easily.

    I use the MKS tugs on two bikes and they have worked fine.

    Holy crap! Skitbra returns to the forums after a friggin year absence! You're lucky I actually see you in person (occasionally).

    I see the spelling's better. Must be that new upscale school you teach at now. (you know 165 was going to say this before me right?)

    a while back, there were a bunch of redline bmx chain tensioners for 15mm axles on ebay. i picked up a set of two for $10 and they're fantastic.

    don't see any now, but maybe you can find em elsewhere. much cheaper than the competition.

    I just bought a set of the MKS ones today, so far so good.
    Not the prettiest ones out there but definitely the most discrete.
