    Are you planning to install a front brake?

    Your chain is too slack, and those cranks should be swapped out.

    Ino I need to up grade it Abit. It's got a shimano ff system (front freewheel) which will be goin. And yes I will also be installing a front brake after I spray it or get a brake cable which ever is first. As for the chain Ino it seems I slack it runs perfectly with no skipping or jumping or nioses. I dot think I would be able to remote any more links I will try. I've riden it up some steep hills and I havnt bashed my knees off the stem yet.

    That's bad advice. 0 setback posts aren't "neutral" on most road or track frames. Heck, that Thomson post there has only 15mm of setback which is an excellent starting place. The saddle looks like it's at the wrong angle, but the pic is so wonky I can't quite be sure. Oh, and lose the 10mm spacer above the stem.

    Yeah, the saddle was pointed a bit too much high. I'm used to Brooks saddles. I leved out that and I was playing with the steer tube to a position I like. Next picture won't be wonky. Thanks!

    take out some links in your chain, change out your cranks, and trash those cheap pedals.

    I looked up how tight can a chain be and it seems to be ok I took out the least amount of chain as I could and as you can see the wheel is quite far forward on the dropout it is the only option unless i go out and get a half link connector and I replace the links I took out with it and i pull the wheel back as far as possible.

    It was fine the way you had it before. The chain can be very loose on a freewheel and still be ok.

    Not IMO. It looks way too tight. There should be some noticeable slack in the chain.

    Guess its nothing to do with the fact that I didnt comment the bike before me since the 1st post say

    Post pics of your bike, or tell people what you like/dislike about theirs. I'll start off.
