im not sure if you can run tensioners if your axle is that far towards the end...but i could be wrong.

Why don't you cut your chain a little bit?, And then try running the tensioner.

i had the same prob there r a few ways to fix that take out links from the chain and if needed add a half link, or get diff size chainwheel or freewheel, i.e if u run 44-16 run a 43 or 45 chainwheel just go with a bigger or smaller chainwheel by 1 tooth or at least the opposite of what u got like even to odd or odd to even i went through 2 chain tensioners before i bought a cheapo tensioner set that actually fit

well yeah u can run tensioners since it is way up against the drop out but if it is like almost touching the drop out, by almost nothin, then u wont need to run tensioners since if it slips it will hit the drop out and the chain will get a little slack but if u dont want the tire to move at all then get the tensioners(only if u got pegs)

Only if you run then all the way forward.
I speak from experience-same frame same tensioners.

very true.

and im sick of wheel slippage...no matter how good of a rear set up you have if you hit a grind hard enough something is going to slip.

Yeah but u would probably have to take a link or 2 out
If u dont have a chain breaker go buy 1 and , toy around w/ the chain till they work


warning :donk take 2 many links out or ull need a new chain

im a dumbass and keep ridin till the chain gets so loose i wont stay on for 1 pedal, damn chain even came loose with tensioners on it and badly but hopefully i got all the bugs out(been through snafu hexagon tensioners and primo venus) know i got cheap ass ones that work much better

Or just get attitude adjuster chain tensioners. It's made for those situations.
