Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple & Brilliant i've used two of these on two separate bikes and I can honestly say that it is brilliant in it's simplicity. They will last you years, you can replace the roller easily, can be finnicky to set up to start with but once you get it dialled in you can forget about it for years to come. 27 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by it works very well it does a great job, the only flaw is that the roller gets very dirty, but however... we all use it in non-clean tracks, don't you?? 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just the job Fitted to my hardtail (ISCG05) with old 9-speed setup with double-n-bash (MRP). Been working very well over winter months. Not had a problem with bearings on roller yet but I did pop the seals and repack with grease when new. Not lost chain since fitting so does what it says on the tin...err, packet. 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Крутяка!)) Очень понравился! Брал стандарта ISCG 05. "Банан" из крепкого алюминия - фиг согнёшь! А сгибать пришлось потому, что "уши" на раме под успокоитель были приварены кривовато. И на скорости 1:1 цепь тёрла о банан, у которого материал обладает хорошей "памятью". То есть со временем опять стремится выгнуться в первоначальное положение. Но ничё, после нескольких достаточно жёстких попыток я победил банан!)) Теперь он нужной кривизны. Цепь - не трёт! (Да! Аккуратнее с выгибанием, если понадобится. Не оторвите уши от рамы! Если что, тиски и инструменты - в помощь.) Рекомендую сию вещь. Проста и надёжна. 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job, no fuss Perfect fit for Corsair Maelstrom frame. Simple and hassle free. Comes with a bolt kit and spacers 12 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Great product at a great price Excellent chain device, easy to fit on ISCG mounts, haven't dropped the chain since fitting. Great price. Not too draggy and quieter than the E13 Heim on my other bike. Recommended 07 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by simple, cheap, effective Can't ask for much more for the price. Easy to install. A little agricultural but what more do you want for 30 dollars 20 January 2014

Answer: 
Yes, or you can convert it to Single ring with an adapter.
I'm running it with a 22/36 double ring setup. You should also fit the C4 Ring God bashguard to prevent the chain unshipping on the big ring.

Answer: 
This tensioner can only fit bottom brackets with an external cup or an 'e-type' cup on the driveside.

It can only run with a square taper (UN26) if it is the UN26-E model.

To use on a single chain ring

Hi, I'm planning to use this tensioner on a 30t Hope Retainer Narrow Wide Chainring. Is that fine? If not what other parts I need to get? I also have a hollow tech SLX crankset. Thank you.

Answer: 
A 32tooth chainring would be ideal to get the most from the tensioners chain retention; but a 30tooth would also benefit from the tensioner when in the lower gears.
