Okeh peeps, dis is where you check your chain tension. Reach thru dem spokes and slide the 'patti' holding the round disc in place. Choose a finger you want to dirty and push up/down on the chain to guage tension.
They are lovely chain covers that really, really, really extend the life of your chain.
ALWAYS US A DOUBLE NUT ON THE BOLT SECURING THE TWO HALVES OF YR CHAIN AT THE BACK!
Or get a bolt that will take a split pin through it to keep the nut in place.
If you do not do this, some time soooner or laaater, that nut will fall off and your chain guard will wrap itself around your sprocket which will punch holes in your chain guard and the rear wheel will lock-jam solid and you will slide. Try finding the chain lock link on a jammed chain where you cannot remove the chain cover!
How's that for wise words from a wise rider?
