    I like those colors I'd suggest taking one link out of the chain if you can, or add a half link.

    And don't listen to fishcreek, you clearly have a 37:16 drivetrain, he doesn't know what he's talking about

    Those pins on that chain are so stubborn! I broke my chain breaker on one! (from walmart ) but i will have to remove a link sooner or later... Once i do it'll be a huge relief.
