    Paragon Slider Question

    So I just got my first bike w/ Paragon Sliders, a Gunnar Ruffian 29er..

    Currently the slider is mounted in the rear 1/3 of the slot in the frame. I would like to move it forward some to decrease the chainstay length.

    To do so I would have to remove 1" of chain length (using a SRAM powerlink)

    The issue is that I only have about 3/4" of slot left in the frame, before I ruin a new chain by making it to short does shortening a chain 1" equate to 1" movement of the slider?

    it would be closer to half inch, half inch on top half inch on the bottom, before you shorten the chain, undo your power link, slide you wheel as far forward as you can go and wrap your chain around your front ring, if you can remove the necessary links to shorten it properly than go ahead and shorten it, if not than you can always buy a half link form your LBS and use that instead.

    Thanks, I do not know why I did not think of just testing it out before actually shortening the chain.

    While I have nothing of value to add. Sweet looking bike, and you will love Paragon Sliders. Enjoying them immensely.
