Ciao

Quick one - anyone used these? Cheap and cheerful do the job or bag of pants waste of money?

Any alternatives below £20?

Grazie, ciao

  • I would go with this:

    Well actually I'd go with a Surly Tuggnut as the finger adjuster is much more convenient and it has a bottle opener, but otherwise it'd be one of them.

    Cool - thank you. Only problem is that I'm using q/r so need 5mm ones.

    Any other ideas?

    Ta muchly, M.

  • ah ok, then the only options I know are the Tuggnut or the On One/Genetic tensioner. On One is the cheapest.

    Cool - thank you.they can't be that bad can they? If so at least they will add to the collection of bits that have been smashed with a hammer and then thrown into next door's garden.

  • I'm sure they do the job fine to be honest. I recently fitted a tuggnut and it's awesome, the finger adjustment is fantastic. I can see the two bolts being a bit tricky to get right, but if you always run the same gear once it's on it's on.

    This is my thinking - once the rear wheel is on the only time it's coming off is for tub replacement so a few minutes initial set up time isn't too bad.

    Thank you again for your help.
