    Has anyone used half-link chain for their MB builds instead of the supplied 415 chain?
    It seems to me that with the half links, it would be much easier to fine tune chain length and do away with the tensioner that comes with these kits.

    i'm running it. kept breaking the single speed chain that was on my shift kit. been running great ever since.

    go to your local bike shop and ask for it. the one i got was $30, and the pins have notches in them so they pop in place and won't be stiff.

    I have used em and had no problems at all. Can save a whole lotta hair pulling. My local ace has them. Think I also got 5 for 20 bucks at Granger's. Really nice to have on hand.
