    Chain tensioners for road frames?

    I know, I know. I tried the "search" for this question but couldnt find exactly what I was looking for. I know a while back, someone ask about chain tensioners for road frames, ie vert drop outs, and someone made them. I even saw the pic in the post.

    Now, Im trying to find them. Or get any info on them.

    Anyone?

    Thanks

    The surley singulator works. I had one on my road bike for a while.

    Well, Im thinking it was the type (and excuse me for not knowing the exact name of it) that just attachted to your drop outs and had a screw you tighten when you wanna tighten your chain.

    This should answer almost all of your questions about converting your bike to SS.
