    There sure seems to be a real spot for a aftermarket chain tensioner. It needs to fasten to both rear stay's, not be ugly, and maybe even come with or without a incorpoated adj. kickstand. I'd buy one. It's not news to anyone that the one's that come with the kits just aren't that great. Alot of us just don't have the tools to really make a good one. (some of the seat down tube designs are looking good too)

    Creative engineering is coming out with one that looks pretty nice. Initially, it'll be a part of their aftermarket install kit...

    I ordered one of his copper exhaust gaskets. Very nicely made, quick to ship too. Seems like everything he makes is really good quality. I'll keep an eye out of it, thanks.

    check this out, had extra parts from my shift mechanism, and bolted it on. works perfect, my chain never slipped off or came off since.
