    Im thinking about trying to get rid of the chain tensioner by A=shortening chain B=locating wheel all the way back (if possible)and C= shimming the rear engine mount. ive read about it being done.
    ive got the equipment needed to do what i said basicaly i need to know of any disadvantages this may cause. replies are muchly appreciated thanks guys:idea:

    yeah the issue im worried about is the adjustment. but i really dont like the tensioner im cosidering modifying the frame where the axle bolts up (proper name???) with more adjustment?(longer slots)
    and a chain adjuster like on a motor bike.
    i hate the noise of the roller and chain:veryangry:

    is that your bike making that awful noise sir?

    yeah, just the chain chewing out me stays :)

    clearance with the chainstay is an issue... depends what frame you run... and boy, does they wear through quick or what!
