I've found that I need ease off the throttle a little bit to shift. I like to spin and have it geared so it spins the cranks at about 105-110 max (14t freewheel driving a 38t chainring). I seem to be using my usual cadence uphill just in a higher gear.

Not that I notice but I haven't tried it with any loose clothing. Other than the occasional dismount I don't seem to touch the chain. The tensioner really helped with any slack so the chain doesn't deviate laterally at all. The chain line does have a slight angle and I plan on moving the chainring out a cm or so to fix that but hopefully it won't affect the clearance by my calf.

I have thought about getting a chain tube like the ones recumbents use but I haven't really needed any protection yet.
