You did the big cog front - big cog back +2? For suspension, you are suppose to articulate it so that the chain length is at the longest, and then use that equation. Usually only makes a link or so difference. I think it looks funny just because it is the long cage rear derailleur, on a 2x9 setup (works fine though). I think if you keep it off the extremes (ie riding on big cog in front and back), you should be fine.
Yes, that's what the right chain length looks like if you op for the shortest.
The other way is to use this method to determine the shortest, then go small/small and shorten until the RD cage begins to take tension to find the longest possible chain, then pick any length between the two based on preference.
It looks like Dennis 07 removed the outer ring and replaced it with a bash.
I have the same setup. Isn't his big ring still in the middle position?
So technically his big-big is middle-big.
So what's the problem with Middle-or should I say OUTER chainring and big cog
