Da Bomb tensioner

Post by primera on Wed Aug 12, 2009 3:14 pm

Good day sirs, newbie to SS here, i'm planning to purchase this tensioner because it's one of the cheapest branded tensioners out there, are there any issues re this tensioner that i need to consider? Will it serve me well base on my budget or do you think in the long run i'll save more if i get the more expensive ones like the fireeye or surly?

Thanks in advance. Smile

am using this for quite sometime, ok naman.

Mas mahirap nga lang mag alis ng gulong dahil huhugutin mo pa ang Skewer. at mas mahirap i set dahil manually ang ang aayos.

Pero once properly aligned, mas ok siya dahil walang chain slap at mas tahimik.

(No need for chain stay protector)

salamat sir @max

Thats good to know na kahit medyo mahirap i set up (sa mekanik ko na lang pagawa) maging maganda naman pala ang performance nya kung naka align ng maayos. I think yun na bibilhin ko base on your experience at mura pa. With this i'll get the fireeye SSK, kasi parang mas flexible sya for adjustment kasi may extra sya ng spacer.

Yes sir that's the one, kaso wala pa stock available dito sa lbs lapit sa amin, antayin ko na lang. Sir by the way what do you think kung yung fireeye CAGE na converter ang gamitin ko kailangan ko pa ba kaya ng tensioner? It sells for 1,600 dito sa lbs. Please refer to fireeye-bike.com for pics. Thanks Smile

Sir/s, i have another ?, may compatibility issue ba in regards to converter and tensioner? ex. kung da bomb ang converter kailangan ba da bomb din ang tensioner? This may have something to do with proper alignment/chainline, what do you think? TIA Smile

Sir, ang pinagkaiba lang ng Cage sa normal na ss conversion kit e may retention guard yung cage..which will prevent chain slip o "kabyos" kung tawagin.. Iba naman ang purpose ng chain tensioner. Para siya sa naka vertical dropout frames. Sa vertical dropout kasi tsambahan ang chain sag or tension..minsan masyadong maluwag, minsan sobrang tight..in other words, alanganin.. Dun ngayon papasok ang chain tensioner..pag may tensioner ka, laging sakto ang chain sag, kahit mag stretch pa ang chain mo over time.. May ibang single speeders na di type mag tensioner. Parang mas malinis or mas simple tingnan pag walang tensioner kasi. But again, tsambahan talaga pag vertical dropout..you may or may not need it..better have one on standby!

No compatibity issues regarding ss converter-tensioner. Currently i'm using a da bomb ss conversion kit, and my tensioner is fire eye..no problems so far. Smile

Sir JC thank you for the info, i'm in ipon mode now and hopefully mabuo ko na as soon as possible my first mtb, and it's a SingleSpeed. I started with bmx kasi kaya parang ayaw ko yung complexity ng geared bike, not to mention mas maraming parts and mas mahal, not that i'm against geared bikes, it's only because i want a simpler set up and budget wise bike.

Peace to geared bike users Smile

i think some people have had trouble with the polyurethane wheel disintegrating on them, so that may be something to watch out for.

aside from fire eye, the generic/ m.o.b. 1 or 2 pulley tensioners. around P500 also i think. available also is the Surly Singulator, but that wouldn't be an option for me. at P2500 ea, might as well get an XT derailleur :p

Meron ako dalawang da bomb tensioners as pictured above. Drawbacks, nawala ko pareho yung mga bolts...hehe lol! . Yung isa nabarag na yung polyurethane wheel, naiwan yung bearings...ang ginawa ko, gumupit ako ng lumang cheap grips, sakto naman...ganito naging itsura after mawala yung bolts tas masira yung wheel. rabbit


Pero if I may suggest...ganito na lang bilhin mo kung gusto mo dual pulley (pwede sa dingle speed, price nasa 800 plus sa MOB http://mob-bike.com/contactus.html


or itong 500 pesos model nila


Sana nakatulong po ako. albino
