I've had this on my 90's Specialized Rock Hopper Single Speed conversion for 2 years now. At my recent wheel true up session, the mechanic commented that he thought it had better tension than 2 or 3 others he had tried. The adjustability made the hard part of the conversion (lining up the chain) pretty easy for me. My bike sits outside year round in Chicago, and after two years, this piece still looks great.
