Why didn't anyone tell me to use a 1/8" chain earlier?! Chain pop fixed.
Among all this talk of fixie this and SS that, I never saw anyone recommend using a 1/8" chain during a conversion. My SS project popped and banged and did all kinds of things like that and really discouraged me. I did all kinds of things to try and fix it. Well, now I know it's because all I did was cut down the 3/32 stock chain during the conversion. Running a 1/8" chain fixed it right up! I'm just tickled. :-) Honestly, I never paid any attention to chain widths.
I've got to say thanks, because someone did recommend that in a topic I started about a month ago, and I just got around to trying it. So the infinite wisdom of the group here showed me the way.
I guess I'm saying we should make sure to tell folks to run a 1/8" chain as part of their conversion.
Take care all!
