it's ideal for dualspeed as it has 2 jockey wheels - other tensioners on the whole don't. Another one you could use is Paul Melvin, but they cost a lot more:

I think having a chain tensioner on it will look better than rear mech, just had a look at my 'savebox' which orange71 send pics to me about his front double chainrings, thought I show here (hope this is ok, orange71?)

Shimano Alfine is not bad etiher in silver or black. http://www.petracycles.co.uk/s500-alfine-chain-tensioner-black-p-14079.html

That Quadra 21 certainly looks a lot better than it did. I must admit I'd have binned it. What did it need?

It's a different fork. I swapped an EFC for the current Q21R. The biggest difference is that the current fork has the legs bolted into the crown where the old one was pressed (my guess).

Are there a lot of bolt-on Q21R's out there?
