Yep XTR RD to account for the chain growth when the suspension compresses, Plates on each side of the rear cog to keep the chain on. I'm not sure what he's running on the inside of the crankset but he looks to be using a front derailleur as a stop also... Here is another pic...

check mo rin thickness ng chainring & cog...

usually mas thick ang SS specific chainring & cog, parang pang-bmx...


ss specific chain is usually 1/2 x 3/32"... yes, parang pang BMX Wink

aside from kalawang, para sa akin basta walang bent plates. maski naman meron puede naman tanggalin yung sira o matigas na links. di naman masyadong importante kung "stretched" yung chain pag single speed kasi walang shifting. di ako gumagamit singlespeed specific chain. IG-51 or ngayon HG 9 speed na chain. no problems.

how bout yung sinasabi nila na yung "stretched" na chain daw eh mas madaling makasira ng gears since hindi na tama ang lapat nya sa teeth ng chainring at cog/s?

I have a collection of used and stretched chains that I use when I build new SS bikes so I can try to find the "magic gear" (using a half link and ghetto eno) and not have to use a tensioner... Stretched chains are not necessarily weaker and since I use steel cogs/chainrings it won't really wear out my chainrings/cogs too fast either. Plus, I usually just ride my SS drivetrain without replacing cogs/chainrings (I just have them wear out together since it doesn't affect the shifting anyway and cogs and chainrings are relatively cheap).

Sirs, may SS rig po ako na ginagamit ko for bike commuting, and presently, 2-wheel pulley na tensioner ang nakakabit. Marami po sa aking nakakapadyakan ang nagsasabing palitan ko daw yun ng single-wheel pulley tensioner.

Ano po ba ng difference po in terms po sa performance? Or weight issue lang po yun?

Or pwede po ba wala nang tensioner? Ano po ba ang epekto kung wala nang tensioner?

TIA!

Gen Badong,

yan po ay madalas gamitin for fullsusser SS rig...

because of the chain growth kapag gumagalaw ang suspension system...

HTH

------
@nyumonjing,

sa cycle art meron da bomb chain tensioner & 9-1 ss kit... meron also fireeye 'the spur' & 'ssk'...

may nagsabi sa akin na mas mura daw ang fireeye....

Suspect

eh walanghiya! nung tinanong ko yung 'the spur' tensioner is priced 1.2k...

yung 'ssk'... P650!

mura ba yun?!?! scratch

yung da bomb kit, P550...

i dont know ang kalakalan ngayon ng tensioner... Wink

nyumonjng, depende kasi kung san mo gagamitin na trail. kung napakadaming ahon, 20T. kung relatively flat at patag ang lupa (konti lubak), tama si jaymz, 16T. uso sa atin ang 18T. kung mapapansin mo, halos lahat ng naka ss ay naka 18T. gusto ko mag 17T, para lang maiba.. What a Face
