It's unbelievable and almost Zen like but it works! Someone suggested on one my YouTube vids an easier way to achieve perfect chain tension is use a water bottle between the wheel and the seat tube so I tried it and it worked beautifully!
Now I don't have to hang my bike from the ceiling anymore and if I am out and about I can do this in the field rather easily.
I had been waiting for my LBS to get some more KMC yellow chains but their suppliers were all out so when I went in to exchange the red chain that I was going to use when I was going to convert the Dawes Galaxy for blue one for next project the sales clerk pulled out a SRAM PC-1 and I said I'll take that, too. Guess this means I am riding to work on Thursday or Friday, weather depending, of course. I can't tarnish my fair weather commuter status.
best way to achieve perfect chain tension: don't ride fixed gear single speed moron bikes!
