As I am converting a road bike to a single speed for a family member, I am wondering if there are any considerable differences in quality between the lower priced versions, such as the Nashbar and Sette (actually the Nashbar branded and Sette branded look like they could be from the same maker):
and a more expensive tensioner like the Surly:
Does the old adage "you get what you pay for" apply here? I should mention that this will be road only riding, no cross. Thanks.
