Default Re: Well...

Say, YRR, do you think your drive chain would work without the little tensioner/guide wheel? If you could find out whether you could use just enough of the drive chain to go around the rear sprocket and the engine drive gear, and keep tension just by moving the rear wheel back in the dropouts, AND that chain doesn't rub or slap the chainstays or any part of the frame, you could just put the chain tensioner over on the pedal side and adapt the pedal chain to the tension of the drive chain that way.
If your chainstays are out of the drive chain's way on the lower path of the chain, your problems may be solved.
