B29 rear chain
« on: 21 Apr 2017 at 07:43 »
Hi folks

I'm inquiring on behalf of an old friend who isn't a computer user - can anyone please enlighten me on what is the correct size rear chain for a B29? Apparently a 520 chain doesn't fit the rear sprocket correctly. Thanks

Cheers, Graeme

According to the A28/B28/C28/B29/L29 spares list the rear chain is 5/8 by 1/4 inch, 90 links. Share in common with the B28/B29/L29.

That's a bit of a problem because a 520 chain is 5/8 x 1/4. Plenty of time between new and now to alter the sprockets.
