Thanks - I have got one. Do I just measure against my old chain? Or do I need to count the links?
If the old one was correct then the new one needs to have the same number of links - NB the new one will be slightly shorter in length that the old one once they both have the same number of links if the old one suffered chain stretch (the main reason to get a new one in the first place).
If the old one wasn't correct then check this http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-hel ... gth-sizing
