My new winter hack. Rode it for the first time this morning - very happy :lol: Not strictly retro (modern cranks/discs etc), but the frame qualifies!! :)

Why retro? Top line kit that's been proven to work and costs bobbins!

Cheers guys.
It's a DMR tension seeker, not that impressed with it. Would probably go for the On One, given the difference in price

I bought a MR Control tensioner off ebay for a tenner and it seems to do the job (no major incidents as yet!).

Surly make one that's about £30 and it looks LOVELY but I coudn't justify the expense at this time...

Best tensioner is Surly because you can run the chain above it so the chain is more flush with the sprocket . it has 2 springs in it .
