I just installed a new 525 chain from Blair onto my K8 ABS Wee.

15/47

In this combo, the chain is at about 2/3 of adjustment brand new.
With a 14/47 I'm pretty sure it would be at the limit, especially when it wears.

But - I can't take another link out and have it fit with the 15/47.

What are other peoples experiences with new chains / tension / length?

Thanx
Paul

I've never used more than the distance between two marks over the entire life of a chain. The change in distance over 20 links between a new and a stretched beyond limit chain is only 0.07".

With my worn chain (tight links, some stretch), ok rear sprocket and a new 14t - I could not set correct tension. 15t was ok.

I'm starting to think you can't run the same length chain and swap between 14t and 15t front sprockets.
