    Another Chain Tensioner Idea

    Well, I used to run without a chain tensioner for quite a long time. I got really lucky at first... my pedal chain and motor chain both had almost the exact same amount of slack, so I just ran it without a tensioner. I started with about 1" of slack, and this worked great for about 2000 miles...
