    New question here. broken chain

    On the bike I use to commute, I replaced the chain about a year ago and it never caused me any problems. Recently, the chain broke and I fixed it the cheap way. (shortened it a bit.) Since then it as broken two more time and I have been forced to shorten it again. I am afraid that a shorter chain may be more prone to breaking. I chain is too new for it to break due to normal wear. Any advice on how to determine proper chain length???
