Default Re: my journey begins

Also keep an eye on the chain tension. They stretch a fair bit for the first while. If I had rear dropouts on my bike I would be using some kind of axle adjusters like these. Keeps the axle from creeping forward and makes for easy and precise wheel alignment. That is assuming you have enough axle thread to accommodate. I can't recall if any of our sponsor vendors offer these. They also use them on pocket bikes. Also keep an eye on the tensioner itself to monitor its proximity to the spokes.

so many things to keep in mind... but still have fun!!!
