If your chain is properly adjusted, it will be on the same adjustment notch; loaded or unloaded. Mid-travel is where the chain is tightest and is where I make sure there is some slack (lying across the seat). It won't be the 1-1/2"(?) stated in the manual, when loaded.

More clear?

Ok, I was just trying to keep a new rider from over tightening his chain, this wouldn't be you.
