Yeah, I called DID just to get their opinion... they said I should be using 112.5 links with the new sprocket combo. Or, 114 in round numbers. So, I'm buying a 114 chain today.

Chain links

I haven't found a clear answer... for those running a 15/49 sprocket combo, how many chain links are you using? 112 (stock) or 114?

(If I buy a 114 chain, can remove links, but I've got plenty of...
