    The missing link

    Hi All,
    What is the recommended number of links for the chain on an 18" VL120 ? I have a couple of chips on the seat stay and I got to wondering if I have too many links in the chain. The bike shifts quite well, not brilliant but good, and I've only had one chain suck event even though I ride over plenty of chatter. I tend to be on the middle chain ring 95% of the time and the drive train is certainly making itself heard.

    I never use the large chain ring in the low gears at the cassette, so maybe my question should be what is the minumum number I could get away with ?

    Thanks

    Number of links really isn't the best method for finding correct chain length. If you are concerned that your chain might be too long, I'd take it back to the shop where you purchased it and have them check it for you.
