Default Re: Chain Length/Tension Question

You can also adjust the tensioner by sliding it back towards the wheel dropouts. I had to keep mine way back towards the wheel dropouts, because no matter how tight I tightened the wheel of the tensioner it would always slide to the bottom, so to fix that problem I kept the tensioner wheel in the bottom position and slide the tensioner towards the wheel dropouts.

Edit: truthfully you are likely better off keeping the wheel of the tensioner as low as possible. Less chance of it pulling into the spokes.
