How tight is too tight for the chain?

I've managed with a half link, to get the '90 Cindercone set on a 34-16, but the chain is pretty tight... not as tight as it was without the half link on a different ratio tho

I've had my bmx chain tighter with no problems, but those chains are a lot more beefy. I'm worried about the chain popping!

OK, forget the issue of the chain popping.. of greater concern having taken the bike out for its first spin at the weekend, was the pressure placed on the rear wheel bearings as a result of the increased chain tension :oops:

have taken it all apart and will try some different ratio's in order to get the chain taught but without being too tight

Meanwhile, here she is
