Singlespeed 1/8 bits
#1
Having fitted a singlespeed kit to my bike, I was looking at dedicated rings.
(Namely BETD)

Their SS rings are designed for 1/8th chains.  

So does anyone know if a 1/8th chain tensioner exists.
If not can someone recomend a 32t unrammped middle ring (104bcd)

Many thanks!

I use the 32 ss ring from On-One which works very well

I can't find a tensioner designed specifically for 1/8th chains, most don't specifya size, but the ones with a 'loop' to hold the chain in position will not work as the chain is too wide. the loop is removable though on most, like superstar's and 4jeri's offerings

the surley one above claims to be for 1/8 or 3/32, this means it is a 3/32 with no guide, poxy marketing nonsense.
Keep it foolish...

Totally forgot about On-one!

Looks like I am lucky as the PA seems to have a magic gear when using 32/16, so the tensioner may be redundant!

32/16 is a great off road gear, a little undergeared for some but it did well for me.

Agreed it was about perfect for me too

Seems to be good for me too.

I managed to get up Warren road on 44/20, but almost honked at the top!  
So I will have to try it with 32/16.
