I am wondering if my chain is to long. This is the bike set up.
Full Ultegra 10 Speed. Short cage rear derailleur. 53-39 Crank. 12-25 Cassette.
Big Big Combo
Big Big Close up
Small Small Combo
Small Small Close up
The thing that concerns me is that the chain looks a little to long in the small small combo like the derailler cant take up enough slack. (I understand you shouldn't ride in the small small) In the Big Big combo it seems like the derailler would be fine with one less link. This leads me to believe I can safely remove a link. It rides fine now but I am wondering if it is the correct length. I can get more pictures if needed. I have to break the chain apart because I am adding in a Connex Link so while I am there...
is it okay or should I remove a link?
