Works well
by Anonymous user on 03/08/2020

Fitted this on my old steel framed voodoo bizango 26 incher with no problems. Running 32:18 at the moment and am able to get a good fit regarding chain length so the chain device is being used in the “push up” orientation. Been on a few rides on various terrain and weather conditions and it’s held the tension perfectly, no slipping or anything untoward. Worth bearing in mind that you will need a 19mm cone spanner to adjust the spring tension. I couldn’t find one for sale, so adapted/butchered an old cone spanner with an angle grinder. Works fine.

Brilliant for for a hard tail single speed
by Anonymous user on 15/11/2019

If you have a full sus single speed combo just use a old mech as you will want a dual cog to be driving on lots of teeth. This would be perfect for a hardtail as you haven’t got to tension the Spare chain used up in the linkage. And the spring in the tensioner isn’t strong enough to run at 90 degrees from the axel and have enough tension to work well without the chain climbing on top of the teeth.
