I have only put about 10 miles on it sofar but there will be many more to come. Here is some pictures of the bike.
That is a very clean and nice looking bike. What is the overall length? Just an obsevation, you could make yoour tensioner self adjusting with a bolt and a nut on each side of the slot. Tighten the nuts just tight enough that the tensioner wheel will slide up and down in the slot. Put a jam nut on the outside nut and hook a spring to the bolt. The spring will hold the tensioner wheel tight against the chain and you never have to adjust it. I have done this on and it makes for a better ride with never any slack in the chain. Again good looking bike, Larry (i-paint)
