Re: Heelo from NoCal!
Chain tension is a concern always.
What kind of gear is on the wheel if you don't mind.
If it is one of those which sandwich on the spokes then it could be miss-aligned.
However, this is a hobby of hands on. It's on us to maintain our safety and yes you will get into your bike modifications.
I am looking at building a new chain tensioner. My chain runs within an inch from the tire side-wall and i would like to improve the tracking of the chain travel myself.
So it is possible you simply need to tighten the chain tension or maybe need a better chain tensioner.
