Topic - Replacing chains

Baron Weasel - on 15 Mar 2013
About to replace a chain for the first time and have a few questions.

When taking out the old Shimano chain, the Big Blue Book of Bike Repair seems to say there is a particular rivet to remove?

Current gearing is 50/39/30 x 12/25, but plan to change this when funds allow to 52 and 11/28 (student with tax rebate coming). This raises the question of if I set the chain the correct length, does this raise any issues with extending the chain at a later date. Again I have consulted the BBB of BR which suggests this may weaken the chain plates?

Cheers, BW
