    Almost all of your load is vertical at that point, even when turning, you lean into the turn meaning the weight and forces are still up and down on the frame, so passing it through should be fine in theory? :39:

    What about a nylon tube, cut then slid over the stay. Chain could glide on that...quiet, no friction.

    I can't see it being any weaker. If anything it would be stronger depending on the gauge steel used.
    Not trying to push the idea, but I wouldn't be concerned about strength.

    A tensioner pulley would also resolve issue, but obviously you will need to lengthen the chain. Something else to consider! Think think think!

    Passing it thru is cool, but a tensioner seems like the way to me

    [​IMG] to cut or not to cut? I looked it up "running a bicycle chain through the frame" nothing came up. Well always a first time. Here we go

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] i was so worried to do it because all i could think was when i cut it the frame shifting a ton. It didnt budge only the chain loosened some. So happy thank you for your ideas now time to clean and blend it somewhat

    Nice, glad you did it! Cool custom touch that will get attention!

    I predict that first time observers will think that it was purposely conceived from the start.

    Works for me too. Good recovery on the chain.
