So, another Simple Bikes product has seen the light of day. This one is really simple and useful. It’s not quite a chain tensioner, but it will keep your chain tight and give pretty much the same effect as having the axle slammed all the way up in the dropout. Even better actually since depending on frame/gearing/chain length combo it’s hard to get a wheel perfectly slammed in the dropout.
The wheel literally can’t move more forward with this thing installed.
Made in 0.5mm increments starting at 0.5mm up to 8mm with 2 sizes per thing (0.5mm + 1mm, 1.5mm + 2mm etc.). Also avaliable is a peg adapter that fits around the slammer part so for when using a peg there will be a full contact surface, but still small and clean for no peg use without the adapter.
Take a look at the pics below and you can also discuss on thecomeupboard or in the comments below.
