I've had a read of Sheldon and done some googling, but can't seem to find a definitive answer on setting the correct chain length for 1x10. Big to big plus 2 wouldn't appear to make sense to me in this situation as the mech cage would be almost horizontal in that gear. I'm not sure it makes a difference but I'll be running 32t up front, 11-36 on the back with a Zee mech (the correct sized one for that cassette).

Other advice seems to be "just set it as short as possible" whereas others have said "big to big plus 2"; is there a correct answer?

Thanks in advance.
