I've always ran 32:18 on my SIR9 but i always need a half link to get the tension, does anyone run 34:19? if so do you use a half link? where usually is the tension point with a new chain? 6pm, 3pm etc on the EBB.
Firstly, a couple notes: One chain link usually refers to a pair of inner and outer half links. Your number of chain half links has to be even unless you're already running a special half link that functions as both an inner and outer link, the kind we usually mean when we say "half link".I too am wondering if a half link might be my answer as well. So, for you more knowledgable folks, Size L SIR9 running 32-19 and I'm maxed out on the EBB, ie 3 o'clock position with 95 links (sram 870) and sagging . How many links are most folks running and what cog options does your chain length offer? Is it possible a new chain ring might solve the problem? The current one is a recycle off a 3x from an old ride, but is in great shape...
