    Switching from an 11-32 to 11-34 chain length?

    I am currently running an 11-32 cassette but I am switching to an 11-34 will the chain stay the same size or will I need to add or remove links?

    I dont think its at the limit I wasnt told it was. I have only been involved with mountain bikes since last year after doing bmx for 14 years so I am still learning. I have pretty much got everything down except chain length, adjusting/installing derailluers, and bleeding hydraulic brakes.

    I did that and the length was fine when I went to 46 on the front I needed one more link...

    Just make sure that the RD can handle the big to big combo and everything will be fine.
