Im building a Delta Wolf trike and about to make up the long chain. Any tips as to how to determine the best length to make it? Id just like to avoid having to cut and join several times in case i make it too long or short on my first attempt.
I figure on making the initial length with the chain sitting on the middle of the road sprockets and tension on the derailleur spring? This is my first build ever so i`m learning everything as i go!
Any tips greatly appreciated!

When you make your chain, ride the largest front and rear chain rings, which will place your rear derailleur in the "maxed" position.
You don't want to pull it more than this on your two largest chain rings...

Can you actually get those links for this type of chain? I have only seen them for the larger pitch.
The chain tool is much better anyhow... 10 seconds and you are good to go!
