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)

Newbie question on chain tensioner

Any advantage to have the chain tensioner like picture jpgwith single speed (not fg)?

it makes little tweaks to tension easier, but not necessary at all for SS, in my opinion.
