This is properly the answer I was looking for, if ordering a 14/36 set I would opt for the 106 chain length to allow for an optional 13T front without running out of adjustment.
For the 13/36 (custom)
, you need for 108 links (Check on gearingcommander.com
) just 4mm more! (to 14/36-108)
But with the 14/36 (current)
but 106 links, you need almost 1 cm space, to the front. Direct after assembling it.
You have one more cm, from a new 108 link 14/38 combination, to the front?
I still have in mind, that I'll have to cut of 2 links in about 15000km . Maybe.
But till then, I do not see a problem with 14/36 and 108 links.
Ok, I just start seeing one:
108 links, 36 t = every chain link hit always the very same tooth on the rear sprocket
Now I remember, why I was usually looking for a 37t sprocket in steel.
Couldn't find one, all aluminium.
So106 links would be better!
But only 26 hp and a 520 chain
ok, will report later
