    1 x 9 help!

    I am wondering what length chain I need for a 1x9 with a 32 tooth front chainring and a 12-36 cassette a XT mid cage. I purchased a 110 link XT chain but I'm sure I need to take out some links. Thanks!

    Just measure it wrapping the chain around the 2 largest rings, not routing it through the rear derailleur, pull tight and add 2 links.
    There is no set nr of links, different factors are in play

    If it is a FS, take the air/spring out so that the suspension can bottom. You need enough chain to go on all gears (largest chainring and cassette gear).
