    Sounds a lot like me! Hello!

    Should be easy enough to find a frame with sliding dropouts - mine was £28 off eBay.

    Good luck!

    Someone had a fun looking one on here a while back...

    But yes, chain tension is your challenge, make sure the frame has sliding dropouts, use a half link chain for the ability to adjust the tension in smaller increments.

    Single speed MTB with a chain tensioner is also a hell of a lot of fun. This is mine:

    Clouds of people on the new N/S superhighway heading North this morning, really nice to see the uptake so soon.

    It's open all the way up to the middle of the bridge now and the lighting phase to get on was generous to say the least.

    Of course, all of this was spoiled by a chump forcing me into a set of cones whilst undertaking a lorry, but Zen...

    Green Brooklyn on the top of York Way this morning, I was rolling out of the Shell garage... Apologies for lack of DAS, I had literally just woken up. You did a great one at the ped crossing 30 secs later, so all was not lost.

    Pumped up tyres, freshly lubed chain, perfect layering, and not a dingus in sight.

    9/10 would commute again.

    RIP Big Daddy Wayne.

    I was limited to buying my Track Champion from him, but he went above and beyond in that sale and gave me a bunch of advice about building it up. My nickname for that bike was Daddy Dolan.
