    Rig Chain Tightness question?

    Ok I just got this rig last week and noticed the other day while riding the chain was looser than i would like it to be well i went to tighten it and am having a hell of a time. So let me make sure im doing this right i take the allen screw out of the right side now should that wedge come out or am i missing another allen screw somewhere thanks for the help

    What are you trying to do exactly? Remove a link from the chain?

    Oh i got it taken care of the bottom bracket was just stuck app the guy before me never rode it enough to need to change the chain tension just took a hammer and a punch got the wedge loose. I was just wanting to make sure i wasnt missing a allen screw somewhere before i started beating on it.

    When you go to loosen the EBB. You will feel the screw get loose then start to tighten up. Keep loosening. This is where the wedge starts to get loose
