I guess. I thought there would be a spec out there somewhere. My eyes cross every time I try to count. Wait - did I just count that link... ;-)My Turbo Creo came with 114 links. It works, although I have wondered whether 116 would be better. I agree it's a good idea to count to make sure.
Thanks! I like the tip to use a chopstick. If you are removing the chain to to this, I would add - latex gloves to keep the fingers from getting greasy!Okay, firstly this is determined by how many cogs are in the cassette. 10? Then you will need a 10-speed chain. Next you can flip the bike and put a dot of white-out or nail polish on a pin rivet. Sit on a stool and count the links as you turn the crank. If you buy the longest chain, such as a 122, no problem, just trim some off. An easy way to count is with an old chopstick. It will click with each passing pin. I will remove the old chain and hang it on a dowel in a vice, a door frame with a paper towel on top also works. Match the new length to the old length side-by-side. Remember to account for the quick-link.
I am installing a chain today. Well in fact two chains of equal length, joined. I will strip all oils from them then immerse them in an emulsion of dry nano wax. It does not attract grit. This cargo bike is headed to one of the harshest environment for bikes. It is a dry alkaline inland sea bed with salts and micro organisms evolved to eat metals. Dry lube is so much better than oil. I am preparing the bike so that I can restore it to new when it returns. No gloves needed.Thanks! I like the tip to use a chopstick.
