- Best way to determine chain length?
Round big and big, through the mech and allow just enough so it doesn’t explode if you go into that gear
on the full suss let the air out the shock first
My friend always claims my chain is too tight but I like it nice and tight for maximum tension, stays on better and more resistant to suckingPosted 5 years agoweeksySubscriber
Lets assume you put your bike in largest front and largest rear, with the chain fitted, what angle should your mech be at lads ?
I always assumed vertical, but i’ve now fitted mine and it’s about 5 o’clock. Maybe even 4.30
I’m only running a single ring front if that matters, with a E-13 SRS with tensioner.Posted 5 years agorocketmanMember

No need to run it like that with a single ring setup though. The short cage mechs on my two single ring bikes sit at about 5 o’clock in the lowest gear.Posted 5 years ago
