    Chain length?

    How does one determine the proper chain length on a given frame/drive train?

    without using the derailleurs, wrap the chain around the large chain ring and the large cassette cog. Add 2 links (1 of which is the connecting link if used) and you are done.
    Everybody hears what they want to hear and if they don't they pretend that they do.
