When setting up the chain, I normally go big big and add two links. However, I was a half link off due to adding the Power Link and had to add 2 1/2 links. It seems a little loose. With a Shimano rear derailleur, I would normally go tighter, but this is the first time with SRAM. Will the shifting suffer at all with the chain a little tighter?
Regarding the shifter cable at the rear derailleur. I believe I might be a little tight. The cable touches at the seatstay pivot. When pulling the housing away, it appears to overly tighten the cable and move the derailleur. Should the housing not touch the seatstay?
That's all I have for now. I hope to do the fine tuning tomorrow after work, so I may have more questions at that time. Thanks.
