Default Re: My first build Education

I have recently built my first motorized bicycle, everything said is true, but I am still using ths stock chain tensinor, 520 miles later with no problem. I have heard the horor stories about the tensinor slidding into the rear spokes and decided there is two ways to handle this. The first(which I did not do) is monitor the tensinor bracket with every ride and adjust accordingly. The second(which I did) is drill a hole through the tensinor braket and the frame, so that a bolt bought at a hardware store can slide through and be secured with a washer, lock washer, locktight, and a nylon lock nut. I did not want to drill through my frame, but its better to be safe then sorry! And never alllow a rookie to ride your bike! Its yours and only yours! Have fun!
