Maybe I'm not understanding what you're talking about but I'll try to help. The "tension bar" is the bar that attaches to the swing arm on the front end and the bottom of the brake hub on the other end. That bar is what keep the brake hub from rotating when the rear brake is applied. If the tension bar isn't hooked up, all that rotational braking force is on the brake linkage bar. Does that help?
