Whilst this tensioner is expensive, its beautifully made and does the job to perfection. I have no doubt it will continue to function for many years.
Only the best with Rohloff

ConsExpensive - but it will outlive your children’s children
Prosgerman engineered perfection, silent, easy to set up, built to last
This is the second one I’ve bought as I am fortunate to own more than one IGH. I have owned the Surly chain tensioner also which, although flawless itself, the Rohloff is a lot quieter! It is very easy to set up and will probably outlast me!
Questions & Answers (2)
Will this tensioner work with the Shimano nexus 3 speed IGH?
15 Jan 2020
My rear dropouts are 130mm on a rear suspension bike. The nexus 3 speed has a bell crank and bolt to attach the chain tensioner cannot stick out too far as it will clash with the bell crank where it fits to the axel.
Will the chain tensioner line up with the rear sproket and is there any way to adjust so the alignment is correct?
Hi, there is no adjustment built into this tensioner. If you need to space away from the frame Rohloff suggest using washers between the mounting bolt and frame. There is no way to move closer to the frame. Thanks 16/01/2020 AK
How to fit chain tensioner?
12 Apr 2019
I've just bought the 8250 (prod no.12312) and am unable to work out how to fit it despite the instruction sheet that came with it. Maybe I have the wrong item? I'm trying to fit it to a Thorn Raven with std Rohloff hub 500/14. There's nowhere to fix this as far as I can see.
All Thorn Ravens use Eccentric BBs, so no requirement for a tensioner, and simply, no where to bolt one on!
