Default Re: Shortening chain/Tensioner on Cranbrook

As for shortening the chain, ive been using a dremel to cut the little pieces that join the link and then some pliers to actually take the links off.
A chain popper tool is the way to go with one or have a bike shop pop out how ever many links you need then just use the master link to connect again....I go to a bike shop and they are more'n happy to do this and they never charge me either since it only takes like....2 minutes...

Good luck,
