Ok so ive had this bike for about 3 mounths and the chain wont stay tense!. I loosen the wheel and pull it tight and crank that suka down almost everyday! and after every ride the chain is loose as a mother! I mean its boarder line dragging on the frame. Any ideas on what I could check?

lol i use to have that problem all the time because i grind alot. i actually put a nuts (no homo) in front of the axle so that my wheel CANTmove foreward now. or you could buy some chain tentioners. either way works fine DO IT UP BREAH

use washers with serrated sides on them, and sand your drop outs. both will help. chain tensioners work too. buy a chain checker, see if its stretched. it does happen.


got bike?
