welcome to the forums lyn, to adjust your chain..on the rear axle..one side is two bolts..one has a 12 mm nut that goes on a long bolt that has a 17mm bolt through it..and the is also another 17mm bolt right above that one above the axle tubbing..loosen all three..first the big 17mm bolts..then the 12mm, then loosen the two 17mm bolts that are on the right hand side, after you do this..tigthen the 12mm nut down..this will pull the slack out of the chain..once this is done..re-tighten the 4 big 17mm bolts back down. if your bike is missing the 12mm nut with the long threaded bolt..just pull the rear axle tubbing backwards..this will pull your chain slack out.
