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 tensioner on a singlespeed conversion?

Out of boredom I was watching some of the shiftlessbastards vids on youtube; on the tightening the conversion rear wheel, the mechanic said something about a chain tensioner on a conversion....

Is this even possible/effect on a horizontal drop out conversion?

~~~Look >>> at 3rd post in thread for clarification.

You didn't understand me that well; sorry.

Okay, is it possible to have one of these guys:

Do you have an image of how it would be set up? Cause I'm having quite a hard time trying to imagine how I would put it on to horizontal dropouts....
