the less slack there is in your chain, the quicker your hub will engage when you pedal

With a tight chin your cranks won't spin when you do tailwhips, can-cans and other tricks that involve taking your feet off the pedals

I love having my chain fall off when I bunny hop, and when it bangs on my frame. Love it!

running your chain tight puts a lot of pressure on your driver= driver blowing up
giving it some slack=good driver

Loose and you get chain slap, to tight and you are causing unnecessary wear to you bike, among other reasons.

Because it feels better, and i have always ran a tight chain and i have never had a problem with a driver!

tight chains for a bunch of reasons, no clanking on the chainstay, pedals don't move when you take your feet off, engagement is better, a bmx doesn't have suspension so why would you run it loose? so what if you wear out sprockets, in riding bmx for 4 years, ive never wore out one. people are always saying you'll break drivers and blow bearings by running a tight chain, ive never had a issue with this, and hub that has a needle bearing is almost impossible to blow up from a tight chain, eg, Gsport ratchet, primo mix, there may be a few others.

because theyre better. a little slack is okay thought not alot. if you cant wiggle it a good inch you should loosen it up. and also not stealing your moms credit card makes your chain a litle more easy to dial in.

okay so i know this a old thread but i really want to know, and i figure its better than making a new thread.
so i am having troubles with my driver (hub is a stolen roullette) i love having a super tight chain, just feels better no clanking on the chainstays, but my drivers slowly dieing, is a hub/driver with needle bearings really ALOT stronger?
