To this combination:

Woods: 45/15 = 3.00 ratio
BUT....what chain length will be needed? Wildman says 116 links works for 45/15 combo. But what about 45/17 combo? I'm wondering if I need a longer chain....say 117 or 118 links?
Wildman, what position is your adjuster sitting in the axle slot with the 116 link on 45/15 combo?
I have a 46/16 currently with a stock length chain and have the adjusters bottomed making the chain slightly loose. Have a 17t CS on it's way and I think (just by eyeballing it) 46/17 will be just about the most sprocket I can use for the stock chain. We'll see when I bolt it up and give her a shake.
I'll keep you guys posted.
