questions about the

Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner

asked by: A Visitor
does this tensioner bolts to the frame or attaches through the hub axel ?
answered by: t.young
It attaches at the dropout/QR and derailleur hanger.
asked by: A Visitor
Is there a bolt on axle option for this instead of qr?
answered by: anonymous
As long as your axel has the extra length the large top hole should fit 10 mm .
answered by: t.young
The Surly Singleator bolts on to your derailleur hanger instead of the axle, that may work for you. 333222338241 is the product number for that.
asked by: A Visitor
Does this fit a 1/8" chain or a 9 speed chain or both?
answered by: jrichard
It uses a rubber wheel rather than a pulley, therefore it'll accommodate just about any chain you can throw at it.

Review of the Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner:
Great product but works better when set to push down on the chain. Does not create enough tension when pushing up.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner:
Works best pushing chain down. Not as convenient as the spring loaded tensioners when removing the rear wheel...but works way better and is dead silent. I like it much better than the Surly model I've owned in the past.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner:
So far, so good! does the job well, and has a nice wide channel for fitting a slightly wider chain. Seems to stay relatively tight. Good buy.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner:
Good tensioner. Like other review, it works best in the push down position. Not enough tension in push up. Way better than those spring loaded contraptions which just end up in the trash.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Gusset Bachelor Chain Tensioner:
Well made, sturdy. Didn't push up as much as I wanted in my configuration but it's a nice tensioner. I may have use it in push down mode at a later date.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
