I never thought about this, but I am always up for a mathematical challenge. How many links does a V-Strom chain include? If the number if links divided by the number of teeth is an integer, then each link will hit only one tooth. If the number of links divided by the number of teeth is an integer plus 1/2, then each link will hit only two teeth alternately, and this would be possible only with an even number of links and an even number of teeth. I could continue with other possibilities, but it seems to me that if each link hits more then two teeth, then the chain should wear acceptably. OK, experts, where am I going wrong?
