    MOAR chainslap!

    What is the point of this adjustment? Why would you ever want to adjust for more chainslap? I'm being a bit silly, but since there is an adjustment, there must be a trade-off between chainslap and something else. Just curious what that "something else" is...

    They increase chain tension....and that increases drag on the way up the hill....

    Any tips on how to do the spring adjustment?
    Thanks!
