  1. This might have been a decent demo if 1) There had been some light on the bike & chain and 2) if the person narrating might have spoken more clearly. She sounded very tired, a little drunk, or maybe just too lazy to enunciate her words. If you want your video tutorials to be viewed, make it worthwhile!

  2. Nice, dude. Thanks.

  3. Thanks!! no more grazes on legs and arms by falling off my bmx because of my loos chain that always comes off when riding fast

  20. I have to make a 4+ mile bike trip tomorrow, and you just saved me a trip to the bike repair shop. Seriously, thanks, man! And added note – loving the sound of steel on concrete!

  21. Thanks from another Dad…

  22. Dumbass it's not suppose to be that tight. Look up chain deflection. The bottom of the chain doesn't need to be tight as all the pressure of the chain is on the top the chain doesn't pull from the bottom. All you've succeeded in doing is wearing out your chain and cogs faster not to mention more effort to peddle.

  23. Or you can go buy the chain tensioners that go on under the nuts that hold the wheel on. Modern day way. I always used a broom handle instead of the wrench to pry the wheel back and the wheel needs to be centered before retightening. The chain still looks loose. Half inch up half inch down is all the play you should have and I learned that one the hard way. Good video though it shows how to tighten the chain period.

  24. Thank You very much, saved me time and money.
