Re: introduction/questions for the experts
I just read through the tensioner threads and now have a better understanding of why its there. i also read the anatomy of your bicycle and now i know the chain is hitting the seatstay. i upgraded all my hardward to #8steel when i did the install. as well as adding an fuel inline filter, there was alot of rust in that first tankfull!
i've always checked the chain tension before i ride. im pretty sure that its always tight on the bottom but loose on top, thats where it hits the seatstay, mabye my drive sprocket is mis-alighned?
