ASK THE BMXPerts: HALF LINKED
Bookmark and Share

Dear BMXperts
My name is Joe and first off I love your mag. I was wondering if I needed a special chainwheel or driver to upgrade to a half ling chain. Thanks Keep on Riding,
Joe

Nope, half link chains will work on any gearing set up, race or freestyle. Just be sure you get the right width chain for your application. 1x2”x1/8” chains are most common on freestyle bikes while 1x2”x3/32” chains are more common on high-end race bikes. Also keep in mind that half link chains are not recommended on gear ratios smaller then 25/9. So feel free to upgrade Joe, don’t let us stop you.
