Chain too short query
Quick query, just replaced my chain but the replacement is too short by 2 links (ordered chain with 120 but they sent 114). Apart from not being able to use some of the bigger cassette sprockets with the big chain ring, are there any other issues when running the chain too short?
Alts, LBS will have offcuts from new chains they have fitted so grab some and fit using above same said aforementioned quick link.
(Have a TT tomorrow so just want peace of mind).
Never needed em though.
Just annoying that the replacement chain was mislabelled and didn't realise until I fitted it - and they won't accept a return as it's been fitted. FFS!
However, hopefully the course terrain does not put you on a slight incline where ordinarily you might be tempted to use big-big to keep the power up instead of switching to the small ring for a very short spell!

The chain is 2 links short. Seems to shift perfectly on the stand, but not tried big front ring with the larger rear sprockets. Can't recall ever using that combo though, so hoping it will be ok to use it tomorrow, then I won't need it again until I get some extra links.
just lob the 25 on a zooooooom along and win it for us.
