    Magic link for XTC carbon 29er?

    I'm planning to convert my XTC to a SS and was curious if anyone knew what the magic link set up might be...or if there is one. I'm not opposed to use a tensioner, just inquiring what the magic link might be.

    Thanks

    Don't know the specific magic combo for the XTC but usually 2:1 plus a half link gets the job done.

    In my experience, half links and such are not a viable option as the chain lengthens pretty significantly and quickly as it wears. The length of chain that is the correct length one week will quickly be too long within a week or two. I'd recommend a tensioner
