Default Re: New here, with a DIY Chainsaw Bike

Quick update: I reached a new top speed of 26.3mph yesterday. Backed off the tension bolt a couple turns, for less low torque and more top. It took a few minutes of fine tuning on the U-bolt, but the extra 5mph was worth it. Now I know how many turns from there it takes for pulling myself and a full backpack, should I need to adjust again later. I'm marking notches on each set of threads with a sharpie for now.
