And if you can pull that off, that is the best plan by far I think. Those little "chain tensioner/guide wheels" cause almost more trouble than they're worth sometimes. Alas, my chain would slap the chainstay without one, no matter how I futzed around with the engine mount location. So I'm stuck with using one. And I envy you, Adam.
