After I had my tires and chain installed I noticed that things feel different.

I stalled it twice from a stop and I never do that.

Sup wit dat?

Edit~ argh forgot to mention that the chain had 1 1/2" slack before re-installation, and now it has roughly 1/2".

Way tight.

Loosen that bad boy up. And unless your chain and sprockets are caddy wampus I don't think there should be a reason that your new bits are causing you to stall.

If it is WAY, WAY too tight it can bind up the drive-train. And, they might have it on crooked and have the brakes dragging or the like. Best to double check the 'work' done.

Hrm... I think I should have explained that differently. I was really pressed for time.

First I'm fully aware of the chain tolerances. I've been too busy and/or tired to adjust it.

The stalling has more to do with me, and less to do with the bike. I guess what I meant was; have you noticed a big difference (drive-line lash?) going from one extreme to the other in regards to chain slack?

There is one intersection I almost always nearly stall at because it's uphill but doesn't look like it. I know that's me :)

That makes sense Mike. Actually that pretty much explains it.

I'll back it off a bit on my day off.
