Re: No chain tensioner, small sprocket, it's actually a pedal bike!

It's to make up for the difference between the drive chain and pedal chain. If you get real lucky and both chains just work, that's fine but most (like all) of the time they are slightly off so you have to adjust to fit the drive chain and use the tensioner on the pedal chain.

If your tensioner is bunk you can just bend it with pliers until it's lined up. Pretty much every time I have to do some tweaking.
