Default Re: motor out of box,,, any cause for alarm

replacing all the screws is never a bad idea, most of em feel like really soft metal.

as far as the chain tensioner goes, no matter how tight you torque it down it will still be movable by hand in my experience, it flipped into my spokes and messed one up, i was going slow so it wasn't a big deal but if i was going fast it could have been really bad.

another member here, adam valentine suggested i put strips of a tin can between the brackets and the bike frame, worked like a charm, could hit the the thing with a hammer and it wouldn't move (seriously i tried)
