Update - I took of the tensioner, and it works fine! Using the half link to get the 'magic gear,' my chain is perfectly tensioned. In fact, it's a bit tighter than my derailleur bike. According to the late great Sheldon Brown, I'm looking for 1/2" of deflection at the mid point of the chain. I'm getting about 3/8" so I think it will be fine. My chainline is off by about 1.5 mm so time will tell if it will fall off. I'm buying a longer spindled BB soon to correct the chainline issue. I'm very surprised, on my 16 mile commute today the bike was more silent than ever.
