I'm having real problems aligning my chain.
This is only the second time I've done this on the Strom, and it's
turning out to be just a huge a headache as the first.
I'm using the "race bike" method where you tweak the adjusters, then
spin the tire 3-4 times, and then verify alignment by checking
sprocket spacing in the links at the rear of the tire.
Thing is, after a gazillion iterations of this, I just can't seem to
get it aligned. Tweak one way just a touch, it's too far over to one
side. Then tweak back, and it's too far on the other side. Many times,
part of the chain will be too far left, while another part of the
chain will be too far right - regardless of the number of spins.
Then, to top it all off, as soon as I torque up the nut, it shifts
again, somewhat unpredictably. I've had to re-loosen the thing so
many frigging times I'm about to lose my mind.
What's the deal here? Should I be doing the adjustment with the nut
totally loose? Partially loose? How anal should I be about the
alignment of the sprockets.
Argh! This is driving me crazy!
