<P>I think it is a 17mm or that is what is used on my back wheel.  It has become my one of my "favorite" or "less favorite" tools depending on how you look at it.  - it's been put to a lot of use.</P>

<DIV></DIV>Dave, the process to tighten the chain is moving the rear wheel back. To do this, you will need to loosen the axle nuts on each side of the rear wheel. This will require a metric wrench, 16 mm I think but I'm not sure. Then adjust the tensioners, 10 mm wrench needed, on each side an even amount so the wheel stays straight but moves back until a small amount of slack remains in the chain. Retighten the axle nuts and your done.      Joe
