Not just another chain tensioner question?
Well . . . kinda. Anyway, I am looking for the best suited chain tensioner for my single speed road bike that will let me use two gears (one for flats and the other for hills) on my rear cassette. I am riding a conversion and don't have the funds for a flip/flop wheel. The rear cogs I am using have a two tooth (wow, say that fast ten times) difference, so I guess the chain tensioner I need has to be able to adjust for that. I am currently using a derailluer (no cable) with a longer adjusting screw to align between the two gears. I currently have the two gears spaced out on the cassette where they both align just inside and outside of the front ring. Do you think that with a standard chain tensioner I will drop the chain with this kind of setup? Perhaps the Paul Components Melvin will work? Thanks all.
