    I need help solving a problem with a bmx bike I have a Primo Power Bite crank with Premium 39 tooth sprocket, a Oddysey Hazard Light Cassette, and a KMC 1/8" Heavy chain. After replacing the rear tire I can't tighten the rear wheel and eliminate a "binding" within the chain at the same time. Any ideas?

    Hmm...not sure I've ever encountered a problem like that before. I hope you get it figured out as soon as possible!

    Whats ur rear cassette size? alot of the problem comes when u replace ur chainwheel people dont match up with the right rear cassette so they are running with the wrong gears and also makes tighting chain a problem

    The chain may be wore out and stretched causing it to not fit down in the casstte gear. It may be the wrong thickness or something... I'm too tired to think of other options.

    do you have the spindle hole spacer in you sprocket? premium used a 15/16ths hole whereas the primo cranks use a 22mm spindle, you need a spacer.
