Gusset Bachelor

- Need something to tension your chain that's cheap, durable, and unobtrusive? Look no further!
- 2-point fixing (mech hanger and dropout - for both Hope Pro 2 and standard QR hubs) ensures the tensioner stays tight.
- Extra wide machined Polyurethane jockey wheel running on sealed cartridge bearings is durable and quiet, and fits all chains.
- CNC Machined aluminium alloy main arm curved in towards the spokes, keeping it out of the way.
- Steel fittings to ensure they don't get rounded off!
- Super slim design keeps it out of harm's way.
- Can be set for up or down tension.
- Not compatible with Chris King Fun Bolts (without heavy modification).
- Weight: 102g including all fixtures and fittings.

Additional Information

The main arm shape has recently changed slightly, offering more adjustability. It now appears as pictured in the first image.

May not be compatible with some frames which have deep 'socket-type' dropouts. If you are unsure if this product will fit your bike then just give us a call and ask!

Please note that we recommend double wheel tensioners for 15T and smaller rear sprockets. This is to ensure a healthy amount of chain wrap and help to eliminate the chance of the chain skipping.



Hi would this fit on my diamondback effect?

Hi Scott - this tensioner would fit on an Effect just fine. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Matt - this will work with that hub no problem. Thanks, Flipp.


Good morning. Have you got spares of this product? The piece that goes on the end of the axle is not so hard. Have you got this spare in steel? Thanks.

Hi Pablo - unfortunately we can't get spare parts for these tensioners. Thanks, Flipp.


Will this tensioner work with all bikes with vertical drop outs

Hi Tom - It should do, although we don't recommend it if you're using a rear sprocket smaller than 15t. Thanks, Mark

hey will this fit on the onza ska thanks

Hi Calum - To use the Gusset tensioner you'd need to have vertical dropouts. As the Onza Ska bike has horizontal dropouts it wouldn't work, sorry! Thanks, Mark

Hey guys would this be suitable for a 2012 fourplay on pro 2 evo hubs ?

Hi Gary!
This tensioner should fit your Inspired fine, although you'll most likely need to play around with your single speed spacers and sprocket to get it all lined up correctly as there's no adjustment for chainline on this tensioner.
