and less than 2. If you want to know precisely, you can current
chain's links OR measure how far the Free Radical moves the rear
wheel, and do some math.
std chain is around 110 links, give or take (I think a typical chain
comes with 114 links, and I usually end up taking out a few). The
Free Radical moves the rear wheel back by x inches, at 2 links per
inch (1/2" pitch), you'll need 110 + 4x.
I'm not at home, otherwise I'd go measure, but lets assume the Free
Rad. moves the rear wheel 16" back. 110 + 4*16 = 174. So in this,
you need a little more than 1.5 chains. I stand corrected.
Can you tell I'd rather be somewhere other than here at work?
