    so after a good few months of working on my bike on and off I finally have it running however this piece is bent up and not very good, and also doesn't have a screw. Therefore it keeps making my drivechain fly off because of sliding on frame. Anybody know? Thanks!

    What the heck is that? My kit did not come with one of those! :eek: What have you been using it for? The chain? Huh? How?! It sort of looks like a cable tidying clip thingy???

    It holds the chain tensioner spring to the frame and holds tension me and my friends just call it a bracket. It's probably a cheap piece on eBay just can't figure out the real name

    Ohhh you mean the reverse frontside boardslide nollie flip retention preventer.
    Obviously. -_-

    Yeah that whole thing looks like it must really suck as a chain tensioning method.
    I remember someone saying that the grip tape they put on steps and boat decks and stuff can work. Sounds plausible.

    I would call it a spring bracket. As long as we all know that we are talking about a spring chain tensioner then the context should deliver the rest.
