Chain Length Determination
According to Sheldon Brown, the best way to determine the necessary chain length for a drive train is to wrap the chain around the large sprockets front and rear (as I recall), without running the chain through the RD. My question is: Does this mean the chain can be the same length for a bike with a long cage RD as well as a medium or short-cage mech?
