    How many links?

    Sorry for my ignorance but how many links on a chain is everyone running with a 22/32/44 crankset and a 11-34 rear cassette from the Big-S? I have always run a 24/34/46 with a 11-32 cassette as reference.

    Thanks!

    Measurement

    Best way to measure the length of the chain you need is shift to largest front and rear gear. The deraileur should be maxed out.

    Chain Length

    The correct method for measuring your correct chain length is to place the chain around the largest cog in the cassette and the largest chairing while not threaded through the derailleur. Add two links(one innie and one outie).
    Rule books are paper they will not cushion a sudden meeting of stone and metal.

    Forgot, if it is a dually, this measurement should be made with the rear end compressed.
