    3x9 to 1x9 chain length

    Just converted to 1x9 on my 29er.

    I just kept the 32 ring middle in the front and I have long cage deraileur. Do I need to loose few chain link or am I okay with orginal length which was set up for 3x9 with long cage deraileur. It seems that my chain is little loose when I am in high gear in the back. Thank you!

    I took 4 links out when I did it initially and then when I got my short cage X0 I took out another two. Start with 4 and, worse case scenario, put 1 or 2 back in if things don't look right. I noticed MUCH crisper shifts after going to the short cage. I'd recommend it

    Why are you guessing? do it correctly. do a google search for correct chain lenght or read the package on a new chain.
