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)

chain tensioners (the mount on your derailleur kind)

I'm putting together a single speed full suspension mountain bike. I've been looking at the surly singleator but the price is a little high. Can anyone recommend a similar quality chain tensioner. I figure i probably need the chain guides (similar to the surly) because i plan to treat the bike pretty rough, and drops are going to be a regular thing. I'd like to spend under 30 if possible, thanks in advance.

I had good success with the kit from performance bike. It took some adjustment on the tensioner to get it exactly right...but stood up to anything I threw at it.
