I'm building up a cheap SS from an old SuperGo Access frame, with vert dropouts. I know most people use like a Singleator, Rennen or some sort of tensining system, but i have seen in pictures, people just running a chain all around without anything(on vert dropout bikes). Is it possible to just cut the chain to the exact length and run the bike without problems?
My reason for asking is that I jsut dont like the look of a tensioner there, and I'm going to buy a frame with an EBB right now.
Anyone use the Shadow Conspiracy Interloc chain? It uses half links which apparantly allows you to get the perfect chain lenght, without a tensioner.
