Is it just a single speed bike? If so how tight is the chains up and down movement when it's on the proper way. If it moves more than about a 1/2" each way or 1" total travel then you need to loosen the back wheel a little and pull it back to take up the slack and while holding it back tighten the wheel.

If the chain is tight check the front sprocket and see if it's bent or warped at all.
