Rick,

One of the blue belt's advantages is it's exceptional stability. Continue to check it's tension on a regular maintenance schedule, but once it's set initially, it's very unlikely that you'll ever have to re-tension it. To date, I've never had to re-tension a blue belt due to stretch.

It appears to me that you're walking away from the convenience of front-side adjustability just to cover a need you'll never have. Just my two cents...

Why not hold off on selling your Van Ruth tensioner until you're certain you won't be using it.

Regards,
Tim Engel
