OK, so Im trying the 29er SS thing, and its nice...BUT the chain has snapped twice. The first time I was using a half link and a sram power link and a sram pc-1 chain, no tensioner. The second, I changed the gearing and used no powerlink, no half link, just the same chain and a tensioner...the bike is a motobecane fantom, so no ebb, and it has vertical dropouts, so trying to find the right gear is important, but why does my chain keep snapping? It only happens on very steep hills where the chain is under a lot of stress, but I still dont think my chain should be snapping...

you either need an anchor chain from a Navy ship, or a nice and strong KMC bmx chain.
