    Cheap fix to keep chain tensioner from moving.

    This works best with aluminum frame, the concrete screw is placed in between the chain tensioner, and the nuts tightened down hard (wont work with stock chinese nuts), the concrete screw digs itself into the aluminum and keeps it from moving.

    Parts Required:
    - Thick threaded concrete screw
    - High quality steel nuts and bolts 14mm

    this is a terrible solution that's likely permanently damaged your frame. use tools, don't ever cut corners, especially on something that can kill you.

    I'm sorry you feel that way.
    Not everyone has the tools to do more permanent work, a few dents in an aluminum frame wont do any harm, ive been running this setup for a long time now.
    Screwed down hard enough this will provide worry free operation as compared to stock.
    Mind you its in our best interest to do a thorough walk around before any ride.
