Chain Problem on my opsis
« on: November 25, 2008, 06:00:32 AM »
I just got my opsis and the chains SNAPPED! :angry:
So i went to my local bike shop and got some better chains and put them on, its the same size, however when i bunny hop, the chains are hitting agianst the frame and  are making dents, it really pisses me off.

how do i solve it?

My chain hasn't broke, but when my bike flies out of a manual and the back tire bounces on the ground my chain gets mad loose... definately going to ask for chain tensioners for christmas...

No. When I first stop pedaling it ghost-pedals even if i backpedal half a crank before stepping off, but even then it only goes for about a 1/4 turn and stops.

What happens with yours specifically?
