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?

I keep mine as tight as I can.

when i lace wheels and run them for thee first time i run it suuper tight like i mean no flex

but after the spokes bend n shit and i true the wheel i run a little slack in it

or when my wheel shifts after an ice pick and my chain is so loose it rubs the chainstays thats when its time to tighten it up

My refs ?... Nigga just ask about me
