Default Re: Hopefully the last of the GGs

Those are my practice bikes. You will note the absence of a tensioner on the Region bike. That was a huge milestone for me. It costs a little more to achieve, but it is well worth the price. The problem I always had with the experts advice to abandon the tensioner was that people that would buy a bike instead of building probably do not have much mechanical aptitude and therefore would not perform the required chain adjustments as it stretched. Apparently they were right, the fix is to simply buy a good chain
