Nope. Still no good. I can see what's going on here. No matter how I align everything, the idler wheel keeps pushing the chain off the sprocket. This is my second build and I had no of this problem before. I'm thinking I'm going to try to bend open the rear fork a bit, so I'll have more room to work back there, but I don't know if that will help. Four times now, I've had to drag the bike back to the shop with a seized rear wheel.
