Yeah if you could keep me posted, I would appreciate it greatly, If I can get away with running it, I will be able to put a second gear on, and run a reverse derailer type mod.

I was mistaken when I stated that this Grubee kit came with bicycle chain.

The guys here on the forum are welcome to correct the following:

As far as I know bike chain comes in two sizes...3/32" between the chain plates, and 1/8" which I believe is referred to as BMX chain.

The chain in the Grubee kit is .150" between the plates, the typical kit chain is 3/16" or .190".

The Grubee kit chain was a lot lighter in appearance than the typical kit chain so I assumed it was BMX is not.

I have built this bike, and the chain works fine! I rode it 10-15 miles and it hasn't stretched or worn slack.
