I'm installing a 1/8" chain on a singlespeed bike and the chain ends up being too long or too short by removing just a single link. And by link I'm referring to one larger and one smaller piece of the chain. The chain has to end in two smaller pieces to be able to use the master link.
If I remove the link the wheel axel is barely making it into the drop outs. If I add the link, the wheel axel hits the back of the drops and the chain is not even close to being taut enough.
Any ideas? I'm probably overlooking something simple here.
