Re: Finally not so lonely!
One more to pop in on the chain conversation, make sure the "long side" of your idler (tensioner) is on the inside of the frame, closest to the tire. I learned (the hard way) that if you don't do that, it WILL pull itself into the wheel and make your wheel commit suicide. lol
And take off your roller and remove as much chain slack as possible by removing links. THEN put your roller back on.
Either way, welcome to the club and stick around, you'll be spending lots of money soon enough.
