1/8 chain on 3/32 drivetrain - safe?
my bike has both a 3/32 cog and chainwheel. I need a new chain and a friend has a unused and in-box 1/8 wippermann chain he is willing to give me.
I know the chain would be compatible, but are there any concerns with this set-up? my chainline isnt straight - I have a sugino rd crank with a surly cog. I believe the chainline is 45mm. Does this mean I'm more likely to throw the chain or create faster wear on the drivetrain?
Or will it just be a case of extra noise (which I dont mind)?
If there's any problem with using this chain on imperfect chainline, I'll just go buy a chain instead. But if it's all good, then I'll just take the free chain...
