    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.

    Here's some pics to help.

    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....
