Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Chain tensioners for SS conversion kits - Looking for a good one

I converted my bike to a single speed using a Da-Bomb 9 to 1 conversion kit (2 spacers and a cog).
Recently I bought a cheap chain tensioner on Ebay (This one) and its pure crap.

So I m looking for a good one that would work with the spacers kit. I saw a Surly one for 65$ and it looks ok but I d like to hear some suggestions before I buy one.

Thanks for your help!

You could just use a rear derailleur.
