........and of course, if your dropouts/forkends/trackends are a bit on the short side or not quite horizontal and you're unable to place your rear axle at a desired location, "half-links" of chain are also available. When I first heard of half-links, I had a hard time visualizing what they look like because I knew what a full link looked like......I thought how you can link a chain with just half of a full link........hmmmm......but I figured it out. Haven't actually seen one yet, though.......except in my mind......and it really works. Spoke to a few people who use them on the Fixed-Gear Mailing List.
Anyway, I think Sheldon Brown sells them for about $5 per half-link. Thank you!!
