|Guessing that this needs to be set so as to give about 3/4 to an inch of free play in the middle of the bottom run - any more and it's liable to bounce off on the rougher stuff, any less and it'll hurry wear.
However thought, that's still a fair range for error. Wonder if there is a more "scientific" formula for caluclating slack that someone knows and/or weather a better idea is to get a jockey wheel sprung tensioner to keep it consistently right?
All thoughts welcome - thanks in advance - M.

|My guess would be about the same as yours--I always had trouble with that when my kids were single-speed age. A BMX shop could probably tell you, and there are lots of Web sites devoted to SS bikes out there. Can't think of one at the moment, but I know I've seen 'em...|
