When switching from stock-sized pulleys to a set of our BBInfinite Ceramitech Oversized pulleys, be they for Shimano or SRAM, a lot of you want to know if the existing chain will be long enough to accommodate the larger pulleys, and the answer is right here in this video. Not covered in the video is a statement regarding the cleanliness of chains in general and how a clean chain benefits you in general, your performance specifically, and your equipment as a whole beyond what many think possible. We will be covering this in a future video but suffice to say that if you are installing a brand-new set of our gorgeous BBInfinite Ceramitech pulleys with an existing chain you owe it to yourself to get the chain as clean as possible prior to the pulley install. Installing a new set of pulleys onto a grease ball chain makes all of creation cry out in horror. Don't do it. Here's a complimentary vid regarding full suspension MTB chain length considerations.
Get a lot of questions about "hey I'm going to go ahead and put these oversized pulleys on there. Am I going to be able to use my existing chain when I do that?" and the answer is maybe, and what you want to do is shift into big- make sure it's in the biggest one in the front and the largest cog in the rear and you want to observe the angle of the derailleur right here we want to we want to make sure that derailleur is not in this extreme angle like really straining out here we want to make sure it's in that nice relaxed position and if it looks like that prior to installing our pulleys that is going to work out just fine also the rule of thumb is if you have if your chain was installed using the directions whether it's Shimano or SRAM or KMC if you follow their directions that chain length will be perfect with our pulleys do not just pull the chain off and then go I'm going to match the new one up to the old one or anything like never do that always follow the package instructions because the last person who put the chain on might have put it on a little bit too short and one other thing never add links brand new links to an old chain you're going to have strange shifting problems you would just have to replace the chain at that point
