Thanks for the help guys. It seems the chainline was not as straight as I thought it was.
The LBS fiddled with spacers on the rear axle and re-dished the wheel to get it spot on. Only charged me £10. I was well pleased.
I like the front shifter tip. might try that, and now that the chain line is straight I might try again with the chain tensioner. A gizmo called "the singulator". The chain seems fine now, I just don't fancy using the wheel clamp to control chain tension. I'd rather have the wheel right at the back of the stops and use the chain tensioner gizmo.
Spent last night setting up the lights, compter, final fiddling and was going to ride in to work today - first time in over amonth, but wimped out because it was raining so hard.
I've gone soft!
The older I get the better I used to be.
