    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.
    NFL will punish America for its sins with Katy Perry as the Super Bowl halftime show.

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

    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.
