It was brought up in one of my other threads that my chain tension might be a little to tight, but they all seem tight to me as I'm used to having 2-3 inches of slack in my MX bikes chain. There is absolutely no play in my chain at the moment, and it definately feels tight to me. Should it be tight, or kind of relaxed, or have a little slack?
