Default Re: My first build Education

When you get your kit and you start to install the tensioner, you look at it and say to yourself " thats going to go into my spokes and i don't want that to happen". That when to add a metal bracket to the tensioner then to the bike frame.

I never had my tensioner move, but i did have my chain come off and lodge between the sprocket and wheel and it locked up my rear wheel, then i really made sure my chain and sprockets were lined up perfect, and used the tensioner to make sure when the chain returns to the rear sprocket that it is straight on with the sprocket.
