yea i already ordered one ......but i was hoping there was something i could do while im waiting.

anyone know if a rear derailler hanger tensioner is more adjustable than the bottom bracket tensioner
A RD tensioner can take up a lot of slack, I'd say 2 or 3 links pretty easily.
should i also change to a singlespeed using a pc-951 chain but i have 2 singlespeed chains
9-sp chains are fine. I usually use the 8-sp SRAM chains, because I'm cheap.
