What is the name of this bolt
#1
Hi,

Does anybody know the name of the 2 bolts that keep the chain tensioned on a fixed rear wheel.
One of mine has snapped whilst undoing it to remove the rear wheel.
Cheers Alan.

Usually "chain tensioners". Though that can also refer to the devices that take up slack on a single speed (not-fix) or multi-speed bike.

Many thanks, tried to get it out myself but it is just totally rusted in there.
Not a complete loss though, took it to the shop and found there are after market ones I can get to do the same job.
