Take a look at this slow mo of an H2 chain off the line. Looks like there is a manual tensioner on top and a guide tensioner on bottom. Suggestions?

My understanding is that only a tensioner on the bottom was needed. Guide on the top is OK, but generally the tension between the front and rear sprockets holds thing in place on that side.

Top is just the chain guard and I can't see a bottom roller, but neither are required.  There is no suspension at all, so no change in tension.

Great! Keeps it light! have to weld stops for the axel concentrics. Ride height is set

The roller/tensioner really has nothing to do with chain tension on a hardtail.  It's to limit the amount of chain whip.
