You live on the base right? YOu can either get me on base or meet me somewhere close and I'll take a look. It sounds to me like someone screwed up when they tightened your rear axle up.

I can probably make it out there on Saturday. I do no have a master link tool though. I have plenty of other tools though.

Give these guys a call, they might have what you need:

Bearing Belt Chain CO Inc
3501 Aldebaran Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89102
(702) 876-4225

From the base, take I-15 south to Spring Mountain. Head west. You'll see them on the north side of Spring Mountian. Big white building.

If a business provides a service for you and you have problems afterward - TAKE IT BACK and have them correct the problem.

:eek: Why in god's name would you even attempt a wheelie or aggressive riding when you know you are having mechanical problems? You must say your prayers, because you are damn lucky the chain did not jam in the sprocket or wrap around the wheel and send you flying.

Why am I always amazed at some of the foolishness that goes on in the world? :cool:

I dont mean to sound arrogant, but - was it not you that stated,
"The thing is, the back wheel keeps moving forward for whatever reason Im unsure of and makes my chain dangerously loose..."

AND

"I have to adjust my rear wheel about every 75-100 miles"

? :confused: Based on these statements, is it safe to assume you are having a mechanical failure that has not been resolved and could reoccur at any given moment - maybe even when you least expect?

Im not posting to argue with you. I am hoping you will see how your thoughts and actions do not corrspond together.

Understood...I see where you're coming from...However, after I tightened it before it snapped I had tightened up the chain, put some lock-nuts on and re-torqued everything...I wasnt planning on the chain coming loose or giving out...I "thought" I had my problem licked... :( Oh well, back to the drawing board...

IMHO I would still take the thing back to the shop that installed the chain and have them correct whatever error they made (keeping you out of the liability factor). :)

Dohh!! In that case...I would be having a chat with the person(s) who installed the wheels back on your bike.
