Re: adjusting my chain


Ooooh NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!!! Not unless you want to find the chain broken and at best lying in the road behind you or more likely wrapped around the rear wheel and you lying in the road. emoticon
If it has stretched that far it will be close to maximum which means the next stage will be the chain either jumping the sprockets or snapping.
Better to put the bike away till you can replace both chain and sprockets. Around £80 should get you a DID O ring chain and sprockets.
