Hi there!

I´ve recently swapped my old 52/39 road crankset for a new compact one (50/36) and I'm wondering if I should shorten the chain due to the smaller chainring diameter.

Should I remove some links from the chain? If so, How many?

Thanks

Chain length gets discussed every week. A search will bring up on of the many times I;ve posted how to do it. Shift the bike into the little ring and smallest cog. Does the chain hang loose or rub on the RD? If not, it's not too long.
