Question about Bicycles
The chain is on but it seems too long!
You can always get yourself a master link kit for your chain and cut the chain then lay it around the sprockets until the chain overlaps , count the number of links that overlap and leave just enough so you can cut off the excess chain and have enough links to splice the two ends of the chain back together so it will have enough slack to fit back on the sprockets , or you can also just purchase a shorter chain at any bike shop , bring your old chain with you so you can compare how much shorter your chain has to be , hope i was able to help you sincerely glenn mayer , please leave a nice rating if i was of help to you, thanks again for the question

You will need a chain break tool to shorten your chain to the correct length see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsU2nEf2Tpc for a video tutorial.

It sounds like your chain is loose. Flip the bike over and loosen up the nuts on the back tire and tighten the nuts as you are pulling the rim back making the chain as tight as you can. You might need someone to help you pull as you tighten the nuts.
