    another chain tug thread

    I know there have been a few other threads on this but none of them have really answered the question I have. I have a raleigh rush hour with fork ends that are 6mm thick. I was looking into the MKS stamped tugs but they only fit up to 5mm thick. I really just want something simple that can't open a bottle. Please don't suggest the surley tugs.
    If anyone can help that would be awesome.
    Also are tugs going to damage my frame? (chiped paint or dent the fork ends)

    thanks

    Wow best answer ever...... I r imprexedz

    Well I can assure you the worst thing that can happen here (with a chain tensioner [the proper name for a "chain tug"]) is some chipped paint.

    I use the redline ones, they're quite universal; the design of it doesnt stress the thickness of the fork end but the clearance of it.

    Most frames can take it (including pro frames) BUT kilo tt based frames cannot take it as the fork end axle clearance is not wide enough.

    These should work for you if you insist on MKS stuff;

    Basically the same concept but bigger to accept wider fork ends.

    i dont have to have mks. i just like the way those look. they seem clean and simple. i think i might go w the redlines though, because of the price, unless anyone can convince me otherwise.
