    Drive chain slack

    Bit of a grumble here but i thought to share with all.
    Twice now at two different shops after a tire install i noticed that the shops had set chain slack to tight ,like to a 1/2inch .. I adjusted the slack properly but it kind of pisses me off that i had to do so as i paid the money to get this done.
    It is a habit of mine to check over fasteners etc after work done but what has happened to proper service and detail in the work ?

    Shops usually have the least skilled worker change tires.  But, yeah, good idea to check their work
