I was just wondering how tight the chain should be set. I always made it a tight as possible with the tensioner, because it would stretch anyways and be tight enough after. I found using the recommendations from the book had the chain to loose.
when i put it together (using Manic Mechanic adaptor and aluminum sprocket) i get it as tight as possible, so there's no play at all. after a short ride, the teeth on the sprocket and the chain wear in so it loosens up a little.
Well when I first build it and use a new chain I make as tight as possible and the chain just loosened enough to get that little slack I need, the sprocket was a mind bending pain in the ass to get straight lol.
