How is the chain tensioner? can you please give me more details of it. Thanks
It's a Blackspire Stinger, which is available with a bottom bracket mount or an ISCG mount. Obviously the Dew doesn't have an ISCG mount, but I used an adaptor (like this), rather than getting the BB mount tensioner, so that I could adjust it once the crankset and rear wheel were mounted.
It was a bit troublesome at first, as the adaptor mounted to the BB would slip with rough riding. Putting a super thin, sticky rubber washer between the adaptor and the BB shell got rid of all issues. It's tight, smooth, and I think it looks much better than the spring loaded type. A bit more work but nothing too taxing.
