    What length chain?

    I'm building a 27.5 boost full suspension bike, with a 11-42 on the back and a 32t oval on the front. I've seen 112,116 and 118 link chains will the 112 be long enough?

    We cannot answer this easily as we do not know the frame dimensions and axle path--you will no doubt need to cut it as none will be correct so I'd just veer on the longer side----lots of youtube on how to fit and cut
