Default Re: Cranbrook, Chain shake/flap/slap

Thank you for your comments and recommendations.

I don't think I could get the sprocket any more centered. As you can see on the attached photo, it's installed around a ring on the hub that makes it hard to not get it centered accurately.

The lateral wobble is very small and I wouldn't think it could cause vertical shaking of the chain. How can I change it when the sprocket is pressed up against bare spokes (no other way to do it on this bike)?

The chain is quite tight. About a half inch of slack.

I think my question is, how much shaking of the chain is to be expected when everything is properly installed? I'm just lifting the wheel up off the pavement and allowing the wheel to turn at about 10 mph.
