Default Re: Ditch the idler!!!

i don't have the idler on my bike, and it's way better. the chain rubs my frame a bit, but not enough to saw thru it or anything. i just zip-tied a piece innertube on the chain-stay to keep the noise down. i could space the frame out if i wanted, but it's a 1960's rollfast, with brazed on drop-outs, and i don't want to stress it out too much...
