Greeting /n/, I have just learned of this board's existence after asking for some bike help in /out/. Let it be known upfront that I know next to nothing about bikes.
My bike recently developed a rather base case of chain rattle. It started off as an occasional thing but over the course of several days has grown into an almost constant issue. From what I've been told by the people on /out/, the issue probably has to do with chain stretch and/or my derailleur (that's a new word I just learned today). Now I've been told I can adjust my derailleur by turning a few screws or something (which I find doubtful, as the .pdf manual I found for the Shimano 7SIS looks like something they teach astronauts), but I have an issue with the chain. It does not seem to have a master link, or at least from what I can tell.
Now I've been told that not all chains have a master link that is held on by a clip, and that it could be riveted in like the rest of the links (in which case, what's the point?) and that I will need some sort of chain tool to do any sort of adjustment. Unfortunately, the nearest bike shop to me is not all that near, and it will probably be a week or two before I can get to it. My question to you is this: is it OK for me to ride my bike (I need it for work) with a loose chain for a week or two without doing any permanent damage to it?

Sup /n/? Last night I seen a thread where someone found that amazon listed a $1500 bike for $6.50. Today I see that they fixed the price, back to $1500. I bought 10 of these bikes for $6.50. Got an email this morning saying:
1 of Cube Peloton Race black red print Compact (2013) (Frame size: 50 cm) Road bike [ASIN: B0032EJF9S]

Hello, thank you very much for being a valued customer.
We are getting in touch with you because recently a system error on amazon occurred, we have contacted them and they are now aware and have requested us to get in touch with the customers whom were affected. Customers who purchased item WT2037 purchased the incorrect item. The listing shows to be a cube peloton race road bike however the original listing is for a Tacx trainer magnetic component. Amazon advised us to speak with you and request you send a CANCELLATION REQUEST to us so we may cancel and refund the transaction.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Pic related. It's the bike. I already responded, and tried to call. Told them, No thanks, I'll kindly have my bikes, and I'll be on my way.
Just curious if the other anons from last night are just going to cancel, or make a fuss about it in hopes of getting higher store credit. (Like me.)
