    Paragon slider adjustments and chain tension

    Hello,
    Little background...I have an Indy Fab with paragon sliders. This is my first ss specific bike I have owned/had built. Love it!!! My last ride my chain fell off a couple of times.
    My questions are:
    1) is there a specific way to adjust paragon sliders? Loosen bolts and then tighten in a particular pattern to keep chain tension and alignment?
    2) how much chain slack should I keep?

    Thanks

    I have Paragon sliders on my Gunnar Ruffian. I'm on my second season.
    I run my Ruffian Rigid with a Fairly tall gear 34-16.
    I run race face turbine lp's with a bash guard.
    Last year I had a 952 XTR Crank also with a bash guard.
    I use a PC68 chain with a White Industries Freewheel
    I have never lost a chain. I keep my chain fairly tight.
    Periodically I take out Slider Bolts and Lube them.

    Besides that they are Maintenance free and love them.

    That doesn't answer his question at all!!!! your just braggig about your bike. (a nice bike however)


    First loosen the 4 allen bolts (2 each side), than turn the single hx head bolt thats between the stays untill teh chain is taught to the touch, not tight to the point where it won't backpedle smoothly. go insmall increments and do 1/2- or 1/4 turns at a time. start on the drive than the non-drive. make sure the distance between the tire and inside of the chainstays is equal on both sides
