Rethinking the validity of your singlespeed bike purchase? Wishing you’d gone the geared route after all? Don’t worry, we’ve been there too. Problem Solvers is here to help! Our Chain Tensioner with Derailleur Hanger is about options. Keep a multi-gear wheel, derailleur, and shifter around for a relatively easy switch between one-and-done simplicity and easy-on-the-knees bliss. This little guy essentially doubles your bike fleet!
- Mounts to your rear axle and rear-facing dropout to pull your axle back and tension your chain
- A derailleur hanger is integrated in our tensioner to put a derailleur on frames without one
- For use with rear-facing horizontal dropouts and 10mm axles
