DIY chain tensioner
Finally the tensioner!
I was looking for metal plate to implement solution I found on mtbr.com. I bumped into metal plate found on my Bike Hand pocket toolset that might deliver the function. After 2 hours fitting, fixing and adjusting, I came into satisfying result (that yet to be tested) :-)
Mounting on RD act as a hinge, cable tie just did a fine job as tensioner and RD's jockey wheel deliver the task as chain guide.
44T chainring in the middle position. Added spacer from vandalised 32T chainring to correct the chainline.
A satisfying straight chainline :)
