    Default Chain Problem

    Having problems properly tightening the chain on one of our grey Spinner Pros. The other 19 bikes have always played nice but this one does not want to cooperate. I've even taken the axle bolts off and turned the adjustment bolts completely out and started from scratch (twice).

    At 9:00 and 12:00 the chain is tight. At 3:00 and 6:00 there is slack in the chain. Neither of the chain rings look bent or damaged.

    Right now I over tightened the chain some to minimize the slack at 3:00 and 6:00. (Our students hate slack!)

    Any suggestions are appreciated. My next step is to order a new crank and then dynamite.

    Have you considered replacing the chain?
