I tried the search. Could not find answer.
How many chain links are required to run 13/52?
114 or 116

Go with a 116 and worst thing that could happen is you chop off a few things links.

How far forward can you move the wheel with a good chain and the gearing you have now?  What's your current gearing?

Was running 13 52. Chain and sprockets were trashed and already put new sprockets on. I couldn't remember if I had to start with 116 and took 2 links out during life of old chain or started with 114.

This is what 116 links on fresh 13/52 works out to at 2.0 inches tension.

That looks good to me.  At 114, the axle would be 5/8" farther forward.
