What have I done to my bike - part II
Ok, I put the tire back on today. Picked up the back of the bike and spun the pedals until it shifted onto the middle chainring up front. Decided I would just stay in this ring and ride it and see if it rode fine in this chainring only. And so I could take pics for you guys.
I did shift cogs in the back though, starting with the smallest and ending with the one you see. I took pics also of the chain routing and everything I could so that you could tell me wether you still think the chain is too short.
I didn't want to try shifting to the big chainring until I could get y'all's opinion on the chain, etc. The bike rode fine in the few gears I switched to.
this pic shows the gear indicator on the handlebars.

So, does it still seem like the chain is too short? I'm going to try shifting to the big chainring tomorrow.
