    A few tensioner ideas:-
    Many of these are from another members collection, some time ago.

    Those are really nice. I have long horizontal dropouts, so I just found two lengths of chain that worked without any tensioner. You can get BMX chain half-links at bicycle shops.

    I think these are really good though. I like the way you have prevented the roller from possilby going into the spokes because of a loosened bracket. And these provide a good method for those with vertical dropouts.

    The seat tube located roller with the quick release was really good. The spring one was a little rough looking but had a very good execution. I bet that is the nicest one to own, since it automatically takes up the tension, because wheel removal will be expedited when changing a flat.
