I put the chain under the bar and used the tensioner upside down to keep it in check of course to the back break still works.
Brakes are certainly extremely important. I wonder if it will ever handle well, though. On 4" tyres it won't be the fastest bike around so maybe it'll be okay. Only you can be the judge of that.
I'm interested in seeing how you deal with the chain line issues. The rear V brake is really in the way. Will you move it to the seat stays? Will you extend the rear stays to improve the bike's handling at high speeds and perhaps help with the chain line issues?
