Chain Tensioner - Now With More Zip Ties

Normally, this kind of chain tensioner pushes down on the chain. This person has flipped the trend on it's head! The chain is held up from the bottom. The spring in the tensioner is pointless when used like this, but the zip ties hold everything in place!

Doesn't have to be pretty!

Ah, ingenuity! This cleans things up nicely and since there's more chain on the cog, there's les chance of throwing the chain. Not that that's a concern on a bar bike. Next question: What is that triangle plate for? No ideas here...
