Once you've got it adjusted to the proper position and opening, you'll never have to fuss with tensioning your chain again. So glad I purchased this and looks great!

Pros

Positive wheel location. Easy to adjust.

Cons

None.

Other Thoughts

I have used these on my Ogre and my Pugsley. I like the ability to set the wheel back slightly in the dropouts and the tugnut gives me positive adjustability.

Pros

Great product, probably could have gotten away with just one but two definitely looks cool.

Haven't found any yet but I have a Surly karate monkey bike so the fit was perfect.

StarStarStarStarStar Tug Nuts!

by
Ownership: a few weeks
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Keeps my chain tight when the axle nuts could not!

Other Thoughts

It also worked to keep my Sturmey Archer three speed cable bracket straight and in line when tightening the axle nuts.

StarStarStarStarStar Simple, and straightforward (plus bonus bottle opener!)

by
Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Does exactly what it's supposed to do beautifully.

Cons

When using two (2) of these, the skewer length seems a little short. Nothing major.

StarStarStarStarStar High quality.

Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Works great on my Surly.

Cons

Bottle cap feature is superfluous. I had to cut two of the four off for frame braze on access.

StarStarStarStarStar best chain tensioner

well constructed, pretty stainless finish, works with bolt on 10mm or quick release axles

StarStarStarStarStar Fixed my problem!

by
Ownership: two months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Very easy to install. Reduces all forward motion on the drive-side of my Rivendell Quickbeam.

Cons

I have a two ring/White Industries Dos freewheel set up, and switching between the 16 and 19T cogs isn't as convenient now. Forces me to stay in one gear more, so maybe that's a good thing...
