Re: Hi, I'm new
Well, I'm surprised but I tried to use my bike yesterday, just a short run up the block, and it worked fine. The last time I tried to use it the chain came off and the engine seemed tight. Because I am new at this I am in a quandary about what the real problem is when something doesn't work. My main problem has been with the chain coming off (and damaging the spokes). I thought at first it was the idler and bought a new one. Then I thought it was the axle of the rear wheel coming loose. In both cases I was experiencing a loosening of the chain and was trying to figure out why. I still am not sure things are right with the chain, but, at least, I think the engine is OK. Any ideas about maintaining the chain at the proper tension?
