Default Re: Newbie with lots of questions

Yea I think I'll be using a multi speed beach cruiser, they have a 3 speed one at target that looks nice. So no large rear sprocket. So does the stock derailleur act as a chain tensioner or do I need a chain tensioner also?

Those staton transmissions look cool. I like the Nuvinci ones too but I think I'm just gonna stick with a jack shaft.

So how do you switch gears with a jack shaft? Does it use the bicycle's gear changing mechanism where it pushes the chain around?
