- Does anyone make a Roller s/s tensioner that fits with one bolt?
But that fits with one bolt, like the Jockey Wheel type.
Put a Superstar Roller type one on the Mongbred last month after the Jockey Wheel one exploded and as weird as this sounds it feels so much better.
I ask because I want to swap the Jockey Wheel one on the Alfine'd Stiffee for a Roller one but two bolt ones can't be used with the anti-turn washers of the Alfine hub.Posted 10 years ago

The Surly Singulators I've seen are a jockey wheel not a roller.Posted 10 years ago
Surely you could get a replacement roller and bastardise it onto a jockey wheel type.Posted 10 years ago
Well, that's what I'm thinking at the moment. Just need to find a suitably sized bush sleeve.
I may just buy another SSC item as they seem to be the same price as the spare rollers.Posted 10 years ago
rohloff. its ace, but rather pricey…Posted 10 years ago
I'll check out Rohloff item.
I took apart the broken tensioner yesterday and fixed the spring. I then looked at the Jockey wheel mounting and I think it should be a case of just fitting the roller over the jockey wheel bush.
I'll see if my lbs has a roller in stock.Posted 10 years ago
I couldn't find any details about the Rohloff tensioner on their website.Posted 10 years ago
I've got a Rohloff tensioner and it works well.Posted 10 years ago
I'm sure they weren't £65 when I bought mine though. 😯
Again that's uses jockey wheels not rollers.Posted 10 years ago
sorry, mis read what you wanted.
ime though the jockey wheel type are superior to the rollers in terms of smoothness and noise.
i may have been spoilt by the rohloff one though.
mine came with a rohloff, although i doubt i'd actually pay 65 quid for one…Posted 10 years ago
Right, I've ordered a new roller type tensioner from SSC and it's been despatched so should have it early next week. Two minutes to strip the roller and fit it to the modded tensioner and then I'll pop it on the bike.Posted 10 years ago
