motobecane chain sizing?? confused

#40? #41? 415? 1/2 inch pitch? What's right?

Re: motobecane chain sizing?? confused

I use 415

Re: motobecane chain sizing?? confused

415 works for me, at 55 mph.

Re: motobecane chain sizing?? confused

415, but some front sprockets don't seem to like it at first. It's like a new pair of underwear: At first it's confining, but then it becomes a part of you.

Re: motobecane chain sizing?? confused

Constrictive.

At first it's constrictive ... but after a while, it becomes a part of you!

Can I talk to you for a second?

Peter - point taken.

How different are these? Wari needs to know. She told me to buy #41.

John Joedicke /

Frenchy's use a different pitch on their sprockets. It is not 415, but you can wear it in. LOL

Re: motobecane chain sizing?? confused

its referred to as 415 French, it has the same pitch as 415 but the rollers are a different size, and the width is slightly different, thats why 415 fits but wears in, your making the sprocket teeth larger as it rolls around and enlarges the teeth.

415 and forget about it
