    I generally install my chains so that they wrap around the cog and chainring, in such a way that one complete loop/ellipse-looking thing is made. YMMV.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I run a link and a half that has the flat/curved sides like that and run the flat side away from the cog, curved side toward it.
    But if you close your eyes it becomes so easy to see

    'Flat' side away from teeth, curved side towards teeth.

    granted..I used to run those chains on my bmx bike back when I was just a whippersnapper..so I have experience with them..but even as a kid I realized there was only one logical way to run those chains

    Hey ho, I saw that rep you left on my front porch for something about being a hipster or something. I was a turd-goblin before it was cool to be a turd-goblin.

    I lol'd at all the similar threads listed below with the word "effing" in the title.
    I see hills.

    Hmm... If I run the flat side in towards the teeth, would my drivetrain be less susceptible to dropped chains?

    Where's High Titan?

    maybe...if you currently have problems dropping the chain, try it.
