    Wreckoning - Chain Length

    How are you guys setting the chain length?

    Remove air from shock, compress suspension, add 2 Links

    Or

    Biggest Cog to Biggest Chainring, add 4 links?

    Or

    Something else?

    I usually set it based on smallest cog, not largest. I go for the length that gives me ~1" clearance between the upper derailleur pulley and the chain.
