I'm going 1X10 here (just ordered parts!) and I'm trying to figure out how many extra links to add to the chain from the length on the biggest ring. I know the standard answer is 2, but I don't know if that will be too tight. med. cage derailer and 11-36 cassette.

Best thing to do is find out directly by placing the uncut chain on big/big, letting all air from the shock (if you have one), compressing the rear end fully, and cutting the chain so that the derailleur arm is pulled forward in this compressed/big/big combination. That's as long as it needs to be.
