just built up my bike single speed for the first time and love it so far. Just had one question about chain tension/stretch
I bought the forte SS kit to do this project, but was able to run the chain with a half link and no tensioner, but the chain is pretty tight on there. I was hoping that after a few more miles the chain would stretch a little and then fit perfectly, but I also don't want to damage anything in the meantime. Will the chain stretch enough to stop the binding? Should add a link and put on the tensioner for a while then try again after stretching?
The chain is pretty tight, and creaks some but I dont notice it when pedaling foward, just backspinning
