Hello, sorry I ask here.

Clutch or spring of my Sram DH on my Commencal Furious went to sh*t and I lose tension so chain is slapping like hell. I ride only parks, so I decide I will put single speed only instead of a new derailleur. I understand I will put only one cog with spacers to my back wheel, front will be the same 34t chainring. But do I need some special tensioner? Or is it okey if I use some Shimano Alfine one? Thanks

The Alfine is one of the worst because it has no side to side adjustment. You want your cog aligned with the chainring and the tensioner on the same line with the two. Any rear mech can do the job if fixed by adjuster screws and a small cable piece mounted to keep it in line with the cog.

Cool. I will buy the Zee mech. What do you mean with cable piece mounted please?

I mean I read it here but I have no idea how it is meant to be. Photo would be great if anyone has.

Thanks

Oh, okey cool. Now I got it. I did not know you need to use barrel adjuster at the end. Thanks!

You don't need to, but it helps with the fine tunning of the alignment. I have just the normal end of the cable and adjusted it directly from the hex screw.
