I bought my Verde bike, as you all probably know lololol, and the chain has been creaking. The guy at the bike shop said that it's because the bike is new. The bike I've had since late August. Should I tighten it...? Loosen it...?

If it isn't too tight, and it isn't too lose, then it may just need to be lubed up some. And if you've only had it since August it still may be breaking in
