The chain tensioners interested me also, didn't really get how it works, Dane??

will this frame ever be released?
didnt dane design the transmitter frame?

The spokes just take up a minute amount of space to self tighten the wheel. It just jams it back farther in the dropout without letting it move.

I use old pedal pins, as i find they never move/ break apart.

Interesting Bobby! Mods are always the best bits of bikechecks for me.

Bent spokes placed in between axle and the frame before peg is put working as a spring type spacer pushing axle backwards making chain tight?

Why not just get some chain tensioners ,seeing is what they are designed for bit less hassle than jaming bent spokes in there.
