1/8 Chain + 1/8 Cog + 3/32 Chainring
Will the earth implode if it's done? I've done research and searched the webz only to find some people who say its fine, just a bit louder, and others who say it's terrible, unsafe, and wears out your chain/chainring. The last thing I want is my chain to fall off, especially since I don't have brakes.
Edit: I'm having worse problems. There are two points where my chain is SUPER saggy, while everywhere else the tension seems fine. What's worse is, if I loosen up the bolts, the chainring BARELY moves against the spider, meaning, I can't work out any tight spots. I'm really at a loss. Now I'm starting to wonder if I should just go buy a 40t 1/8 chainring somewhere...
