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)

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?

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.
