    GT Peace 9er chain tension

    I an looking at a GT Peace 9er SS bike and wondering how the chain properly tensioned. It seems that most SS bikes have a chain tensioner or horizontal read dropouts, which does not seem to be the case on the GT. Thanks

    Yeah I saw that. You know. They calculated the exact chainstay lenght for that gear combo. It's a "designed" magic gear. Cool huh! It also depends on where you buy it to get a certain gearratio. Oregon is different than Florida. So the chainstay lenght is different if you buy it somewhere else.

    No, it has an eccentric bottom bracket.

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    I thought that might be the case. I googled the bottom bracket but did not see that the bb was ebb.
    thanks.

    How are the bikes working out?

    Bummer, I was hoping that you would fall for my explanation (albeit my blatant sarcasm).

    EBB it is. Set screw I think.

    I noticed your regional bike theory. I thought, does he really think so? Nice try

    Great bike

    Hi i've been hammering my GT Peace 9r for a few months now and i love it.
    Made a few upgrades new brakes because the Tektro cables are **** and half the weight of the bike and grabe some kevlar tyres.

    It's still not light but rides great loving the ridgid forks and getting one over the guys with gears and ss er's with front shocks
