After riding about 1/2 hour or less my chain always gets too loose and needs to be tightend. I stop to check and tighten it more than ride. I dont know why it keeps getting loose. I make sure the tire is back against the adjusters, and I tighten the lock nut as tight as I can but it still loosens up. Where can I be going wrong. Help guys. Thanks John

Sounds like a low quality chain, is it the stocker? Some people will tell you that you can lube a good standard chain and it will last; personally I swear by x-ring chains. If you don't want to adjust any more, get an x-ring. Adjust it once after the first ride and from then on adjustments will be very few and far between.
