The Renthal chain the bike had when I bought it was very long (120 links) which required the chain adjusted bolts to be extended almost all the way out. I am replacing the chain and sprockets because the guy I bought the bike from NEVER lubed his chain. Thanks to GrayRacer - I am installing a Regina ORN-6 chain on 49/13 Ironman spockets using a TM Designworks chain slide-n-guide and power roller. The 120 link chain they sent is way too long. I want to take a few links out and move the rear axle forward to the middle of the window. I know this will shorten the wheel base and provide better turning, but less stability. (1) Shouldn't this also put more weight on the front wheel which would help turning? (2) How many links are you currently running?
