If 46x18 works without tensioner what else will?
If a 46 front & 18 rear works without a tensioner how many teeth at a time can I drop and still not need a tensioner?
I guess I'm looking for a relationship between cog teeth & links.....such as X teeth = Y links.
I'm converting a Klein Pulse MTB to single speed for commuter use and the 46 tooth front (stock shimano triple cranks with 26-36-46) with a conversion kit using 18 tooth rear cog has perfect chain tension, but I'd like to drop a few teeth to make it a little easier to pedal for everyday use.
