so with me riding 25/9, and looking at this: http://eehouse.org/fixin/formfmu.php i can either run:

13.70 (full link chain)
13.45 (halflink chain)
13.20 (full link chain)
12.95 (halflink chain)

which is pretty limited if i want to run fulllink.

whats your gear ratio? which one is the most common for street, which one for park? did you even consider this when buying your frame?

I've never considered how many links I'll need. I run 25 9 on my hardway which has a 13.2" chainstay. It's was fine without a half link, just enough room to still comfortably take my wheel out without issues. I got a new bsd chain with the pre installed half link and now I run that. I can't tell the difference with one half link to be honest. I'm maybe slightly more confident with fast manuals but that's probably a mental thing

so the 13.2 are slammed? and you run fullink? then you shouldnt be able to remove the wheel imho

I have a roughly 13.75 rear and run a full link Bluebird. I took the factory half link out because it made the chain too long.

It wasn't slammed and I could take my wheel off no problem. I'd never run my wheel slammed because it's too much of a ball ache
