    I'm looking at building up a Riot as my 4x/jump bike, so it will obviously need gears but I've never seen a geared Riot.
    I know they do a nice looking chain tensioner/mech hanger so I would get one of these with the frame as well, the question is how good will this be with a QR, I'm quite new to tensioners, the only only time I've used them is on my Intense cruiser but obviously thats not a QR hub, will it be secure enough?

    should be fine, I've seen guys run QR's with axle tensioners, which see much more stress than a derailleur hanger.

    My buddy has a verticle drop-out mob with gears and it seems to be doing fine. I personally have a horizontal and it slips like a mo-fo with out a tensioner. I now have a bolted setup and will be running tensioners full time.
