Re: Chain Repair / Replace

Do you know if it has stock gearing? Going down on the front will give you more slack. Add some normal stretch but still within limits and it would appear to be too much.

If the chain and sprockets are actually in good shape, you can remove a link and install a new master link from the same manufacturer.

I can't help but wonder the backstory about how you got to this point though. Have you counted the links. There are supposed to be 102.
