    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.
    ^this may or may not be useful information <--this not so much.
