I have a Sram pc-1 on my track bike, doesn't seem like it stretched. get that, its 14 bux
08-29-09, 01:25 PM
30 - 10 best ratio.
08-30-09, 11:52 PM
hate to break it to ya man but that doesn't sound like chain stretch... sounds more like an uncentered crank ring... or maybe even a warped one
09-01-09, 10:39 PM
impossible. dont grind, nothings bent. nothings uncentered.

Unless you forgot to put the chainring adapter on.
