- Are you running an On One Whippet singlespeed with 32:16 gearing…?

get the 3/32″ one for the chain you have.Posted 5 years ago
…well maybe you can help me? I have a KMC Z510 HX chain, which is fine links/length-wise…until it stretches. Once it stretches the wheel has to come out in the dropout a couple of mm and the pads no longer make full contact with all the rotor (brakes are Shimano Deore M595). The caliper will not move any further along its dropout fixing as the rear caliper bolt hits the frame. Removing a link makes Mr Chain too short.
Any hoo, my question is…what chain are you running? Especially if you’re using the same calipers.Posted 5 years agoAndy RSubscribersimon1975Subscriber
Shirley that’s 3 master links…
I do the same on my Pompino to run it at 39:16. I bought a full half-link chain in 3/32″ flavour to rob a link out of each time I change the chain. It seemed better value than buying the half-links on their own… PM me if you need a 3/32″ half-link!Posted 5 years ago
