I've never actually ridden a chain to near-failure, but I think I've finally made it. I keep having to tighten the sucker up. This time, I tightened it up last Monday and by Friday it was clattering around like it was about to fall off. Only about 200 miles on it in between. Chain was slack again. Wheel was still in the same place and secure. Sprockets look fine. I guess this is the end-of-life for the chain? I parked it, not riding this week until the new one gets in. Seriously though, I've tightened the chain 3 times in the last 2.5 months.
