Default Re: 2 tires down, I must be doing something fundamentally wrong here...

I run 1/2 to 3/4" slack on the drive chain. I also use sheet metal screws in the tensioner and chain stay to keep it from twisting.

If your chain keeps falling off, it's either got too much slack or your sprockets are not aligned or your tensioner is not aligned correctly with the chain and sprockets tossing off the chain.
