Shortlink Chain and Interlock Chain aren't even proper terms for anything.

Interlock chain is a term The Shadow Conspiracy coined as a name for their halflink chain. The "Enemy Interlock Chain" (which I've never heard of) basically copied the design and name from The Shadow Conspiracy Interlock Chain.

There are two chain types:
- Full Link
[LINK TO IMAGE]

- Half Link
[LINK TO IMAGE]

This ^.correct me if I'm wrong, but I think full link chains are better for fine tuning your rear wheel position and back end length, and half links are stronger?

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Nope, half links tend to stretch like hell if you're unlucky.

Half links will stretch like hell no matter what. check the pic of the half link above, see how the links are prebent? they'll keep pulling & pulling and stretch very slightly overtime and eventually possibly snap

a half link chain is a piece of shit

a full link chain isn't a piece of shit

that is the difference.

Get a full link, they last longer and require less maintenance.

In terms of time use, how long will a half-link chain last by months, and same with the full-link chain also by months. Thanks Owen! smile
