    HG and Uniglide link spacing

    Hi folks,

    I'm just looking for confirmation that I understand chains correctly. I understand that there are different widths, as there is a lot of discussion about that.

    But are the spacings between the chain pins the same for HG and uniglide systems? That is, a rear Uniglide cassette can work with modern front chainrings as long as I get the correct width to function with both, but no concern of the wrong distance between pins of each link?

    Thanks in advance.

    Several, mostly not name brands.

    All modern bike chains use 1/2" pitch, but the width may vary depending on the specific application.
