bike chain alignment
ok i seriously need to ask a stupid question here, but do your sprockets on your pedal side need to be even with each other in terms of how far they stick out from the bike frame? my sprocket at my pedal is out farther than the sprocket at my rear wheel so the chain is at a slight angle. i havent really figured out how to get them even so i get a smoother ride. my chain keeps popping off when i try to pedal really fast or when im going uphill and have to exert a lot of force. when im riding it feels like i have to pedal with A LOT of force to get a little movement out of my bike, it is only a 1 speed cruiser though. any help???
