Hard to imagine it could be in that massive gear.

You see that quite often in MTB shots as well. I think it's due to the rough road surface.

It's not really in his hand, just the perspective of the photo makes it seem so. I think it's the pad on an arm rest on his aero' bars.

Must be some rough terrain. Those things are pretty much unbreakable.

... torque on the chain would be applied across the top... and there is a natural amount of play in any derailleur (and to a lesser extent fixed/track) equipped bike.

Be the bike.

I think you've never ridden bad roads!

Here in Belgium I often ride cobbled roads and on these roads your chain is jumping a lot, sometimes even touching the frame. I rode the postal bikes as well, and never saw problems with the chain tension.
