Yes, the chain needed 4 extra links to get the tension right. Also the front derailer needed some adjusting to get it work right. It some times over shifts on the smaller ring if I push the bike hard, but it doesn't happen often and I barely use that gear anyway. I tried adjusting the limit and tension but all that did was make the large chain ring less reliable so I suspect its working close to its limits.
Other than that it was just a standard cheap square taper group coming in at $20. It gives the bike a real boost, and since I don't mind spinning slower with more resistance anyway it suits me better. Its fun to drop a $5000 bike with a cheap commuter.
