    Many times if the bike has the wide balloon type tires it is best to have the teeth to the OUTSIDE so the chain will clear the edge of the tire, I have all my bikes this way and it works great, they are not the Schwinn Delmar but two of them are cruisers with wide tires and they need the clearance.

    Hope this helps.....
    Good Luck with your bike and happy safe riding!

    Unless the bike has skinny tires, I ALWAYS turn the sprockets out!
