Does it matter if my rear wheel is near the end of the dropouts?
I tried to shorten the chain one more link but then that made the chain too short... so my only option that I know of is to use the longer chain with the extra link and move it to the end of the dropouts to make it tight enough with some slight slack. Is it bad for the wheel to be on near the end of the dropouts?
it's not bad for the wheel unless the bolts don't have full contact with the frame. it could be bad for the frame if it's a defective dropout, but odds are it will be just fine.
also, just get a half link.
Yeah I'll just use it for now until I can get my hands on a half link. Thanks.
Will a KMC Half link work with my sram chain though? It seems that people have had problems getting it on because the kmc half link is slightly smaller or something.. or will it be fine as long as I get the 1/8 half link with my 1/8 chain
Just for future reference, I think there's a rule of thumb that's like "for every link you remove from your chain, your hub will slide 1/8th in forward in your dropout" or something like that. Don't quote me on that, I might be bsing
