    • Casual Riding

    Comments about Paul Components Paul Melvin Chaintensioner:

    Used this chain tensioner with the Surly spacers to convert an old road frame and Ultegra rear wheel to singlespeed. The spacers on the tensioner mounting, combined with the Surly cog/spacers, made chain alignment with front chainring, very easy.
    Ended up with a pretty reliable singlespeed beater bike - no chain drops yet. A much nicer end result than turning old bike frame into a set of wind chimes.

    Comments about Paul Components Paul Melvin Chaintensioner:

    I chose this tensioner because of the obvious cheese factors I saw in my friends less expensive products. I am running it on an FSR converted to SS and am as happy as I hoped. Perfect alignment, no slap in spite of the chain length, and cool looks. I'm guessing it will outlast me.

    Comments about Paul Components Paul Melvin Chaintensioner:

    running it on a fully ss right now, hasn't dropped a chain, but i'm gonna put it on my hardtail and run 3 rings up front and 1 in the back. keeps great tension. I wanna try the new etr-v tensioner by yess. if i didn't like this tensioner i would sell it but it's really nice. i'm doing 6 foot drops and never skipped, dropped or had issues with the chain slap. very confident in this product not failing on the trails. i rate it a 4 cause i'm not a pro and i haven't tried other products yet.
