Hi there - I am borrowing a SS bike from a friend, have never ridden without gears before.
One thing he told me before he went away was that the chain needed tightening. I have tried to do this tonight, simply loosening the wheel and pulling it back in the 'dropouts' (actually horizontal track ends)
But the wheel seems to be 'sticking' (binding?), and will not spin true. At first I thought I had overtightened it, but I have been back and loosened the chain and the problem persists.
Any advice would be much appreciated - I have had a look at Sheldon Brown but can't seem to understand his advice.
