Default Re: How can you reduce the noise from pedaling?

Been meaning to make a spring tensioner or atleast something that won't fall into the spokes. Buut I'm not home to do so being back in school \=

I think the noise is the rattling. I don't notice any scraping or squeeking. Definately a sound that the chain is making. So sounds like my best bet is to make a new tensioner sometime soon. I'll reduce tension on it as you suggested, but we'll see how that affects the chain falling off or not. I know it is pretty tight right now. 1/2" I'd say eyeballing it.
