No matter how tight i tighten my chain, it always comes loose again about 15 minutes later. I'd like to find out the problem if anyone could help me out, thanks.

tighten your bolts on your back wheel better

have you had anybody at your local shop try to tighten it? the only reason i could imagine is it's not tight enough.

possibly worn bolt heads or washers so they don't bite into the metal

yeah ive had other people tighten as tight as they can and it always comes loose, maybe the chain streched?

look take your chain and break it intel it fits fush with your drop out..also known as (slamming your rear wheel) if it doesnt mesure up even use some half links,, and make sure u have a master link or a tiny bit of slack so u can get your rim off if u need.
