I bought a 8spd chain and am putting it on a 7spd bikes. I thought I could use either a seven speed or eight speed chain. But it looks like the chain is way too long should I take out some links if so how many. The derailer I am using is from a different bike.

    The replacement chain is always too long. Check the Park Tools website for an article explaining how to size the chain. – Daniel R Hicks Jul 19 at 17:09
  • I had no idea. I watched the video and was able to shorten it. Thanks! – Paul Jul 20 at 19:47
