Incrediblebly Awesome. Works like a charm. I didn't even use M4 screws. Just cable tie the parts.

I am really very pleased you appreciated this work of mine.

Printed and installed on my giant hardtail, not one slip in 10+ miles.

Really very pleased for your appreciation

Hi, could you tell me where this was mounted on your frame please? I am going to print and try one

Nice ! I hope you can post a picture using it on the bike

This chain tensioner was made to be applied to my Cannondale Rize 120.

Unfortunately I have no pictures of tensioner mounted on the bike and, in the meantime, I changed my bike with another. This new bike is already equipped with a chain tensioner.

In any case, I can tell you that this tensioner is the result of many tests which aimed both to smooth turning of the chain on each of the three front gears and to low noise (I changed dimensions many times before getting to this).

When I will find some spare time, I will take care of this project again, trying to reduce dimensions of the tensioner.

I will print another to be given to one friend of mine. Will take a few picturese at that moment ;-)

Pleased you like it.

Even more pleased if it becomes useful too :-)
