I have a half link now and wanted to slam my rim but..... I cant. Any way to make it work?

Are you saying your chain is too long?

|

9/23/2013 4:18 PM

depends on the sprocket and CS mine won't slam either but it's not THAT big of a deal unless the axle is hanging off the dropouts but if it's tight i wouldn't worry about it until it does get loose. lol i might try a full link with a half link thing in it.

Might be SOL.

Try adding 1 full link to customize the chain length.

You'll most likely never get it completely slammed ., You'll want a regular link chain with a halflink.. Sometimes even adding two halflinks works. This will get you the closest to being slammed. Some frames do have a geo where half link will work however, it'll mostly stretch and it'll be a few mm away from touching the dropouts.

Ride that shit tight for a little while, it should loosen up.

Just jump off of something really high and land back wheel first. Also, make sure your tire pressure is really low but still ride-able. Like 20-30 psi should do it.

You're the one that asked the question, "dipshit."

What feeble said would probably work. But definitely not as effective with slamming your rim as my comment.

i think what you are asking is is just how to unslam your overly slammed stuff. take a STRONG chainbreaker and start undoing it, but be prepared for complications with that link, you will probably have to replace it. Then ditch that stupid halflink, get a full link chain and stop trying to slam your wheel. It is silly, too much trouble to be worth it. Have it close, but with enough room to remove the wheel. If your frame isnt responsive enough, deal with it, dont keep changing it around trying to do something to it haha You actually have to break the chain while it is on there. and hope you dont break something when you get it off.

That's so true and such a pain. My current setup is like that and it sucks when I get a flat on the rear tire and have to use a chain breaker to remove the wheel (it's so slammed, that's the only way to remove it). It rides great though, but I can't wait to get an Odyssey Key Chain and be done with it.

My rim is close to slammed. I have a full link with one half link. My chain was a little too tight from last time I put my wheel on and today I jumped up a curb and heard something crack and my chain seezed up for a second and then I turned my cranks backwards with my hand and the half link pin came off of the other plate. So hopefully once I get a female axle I won't need a half link or get a Bluebird chain. From that thing today it fucked up my master link so I cant run it now because I can't get it off so I just put some new links on and a new half link and loosened my chain a little and hopefully it will last.

With you running a half link chain, since its really tight when you've taken out those links best to install one link and that's the most slammed you'll get. A slammed rear end almost never works, it can if you like shit loose/ sloppy chains.

Go check what your manufacturer lists as cs lengths then go here: [url=http://fitbikeco.com/frames/] and pick one of Fit's frames that has a similar back end length and they have a big old table of what what gearing to use with what chain to achive the desired back end length.

But yeah, slamming is kind of unnecessary, and if you really need a shorter back end than what you've got, you should probably be thinking about riding another frame.

As a last ditch, there's always taking a dremel tool to your rear dropouts and honing them down a bit so your chain won't be so tight. And don't just run it tight and let it loosen up; having a tight as fuck chain puts massive side-loading onto your driver and BB bearings and can eff them up too. Keep in mind though, grinding your dropouts is basically guaranteed to void any frame warranty you may have.

You axle has nothing to do with what chain you need to run...

A female axle will not magically change the length needed. Your gear ratio will.

Lets not forget- a halflink needs SLACK! And a good amount of it. Slamming it like that is a horrible idea

Yep. That should take care of it for sure. Although, 48h ribs are getting hard to find anymore.
