    Eclipse Axel/ belt tension adjusters

    Ordered these from Ali-ex to install on my bike. You need two for proper wheel alignment/tension in the frame, and mine only came with one. I saw a previous post on this issue, but couldn't find it to make a reply.
    It takes a while to get stuff- slow boat from china- but if they fit I will post pics. Other colors available, and inexpensive even with shipping, it's just the waiting that sucks

    Since these only adjust against the tension of the belt pulling forward, I will make a strong bungee to attach to left side of axle putting the same tension as the belt side , which should allow precise pull back adjustment from both sides of frame centering the wheel before lockdown.

      If you don't feel like waiting just search BMX chain tensioner. Lots of hits on Amazon and E bay.

      Duh -smack forehead- didn't think of that, an I have been ordering things thru amazon Prime and love the quick ship.
      So I just checked, and yup I could get exactly same tensioners in black in one day for $10.49 ea. or $21. a pair.
      China- $7.45 for 2 tensioners shipped, with delivery in about 3 weeks.

      Since I'm installing my new MT5 brakes this morning (QM42 - 160 pm to 203 adaptor finally arrived in mail yesterday), I would gladly pay the extra bucks if I coulda ordered them on wednesday and been installing them while pulling the wheels off for the new 203mm rotors

      Guess I kinda get good at things cause I seem to do everything at least TWICE

      Roses are red - violets are blue - I'm schizophrenic - and so am I

      WRONG! Do not order for your Eclipse. They look good in pics, but in real life they are dinky, and don't fit the axle - bye bye $7.45

      If I didn't do it twice it's cause I did it thrice!

      The same ones on Amazon won't work either, but at least I coulda got the $ back
Working...
