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)

Tug my nuts.

Will any of these bmx chain tensioners work on my iro mark v?

I like the look of the star shaped spur looking one.

Is there a difference other than basic design between these and lets say the surley tugnuts?

Just stick to the ones for 3/8" axles. Larger 14mm axles are also popular in bmx. 14mm tensioners will have a big hole and may have protruding parts that won't fit into the 3/8" slot on 3/8" trackends.
