    Nice start! You should consider a half link to take out some of that chain slack. They can be found at SpeedGoat.com

    No, I don't need the half link. Basically, I got a pinch flat because the rear wheel was not pumped enough at my house and I replaced it and didn't want to take the time to fully tension it. There is no need for a half link, just I'm not talented enough to tension the chain and stuff myself.

    I rode the beast tonight again. I love the thing.
