Darn it.

It works OK for me, but then I'm the one that compressed it, so it would naturally work on my machine. I used Windows to do the compression.

The dumb thing is that the Excel file is only 58Kb, yet I can't upload it because the forum won't accept .xls files.

Bah.

Hmm, must be me then.
I'm trying to use Winzip to open. It shows as an invalid archive? I saved and sent it to the wife and her machine wouldn't open it either. Maybe I'm still on double secret probation as a new guy. lol

All I was really looking for, was info on going to a 44 tooth sprocket, but now I REALLY want to see this secret file. I'll keep working on it. Thanks guys.

I zipped it with Windows, so you should be able to unzip it just by double clicking it.

Of course, you're an intelligent being and you've already tried that and so has your wife and thus I'm merely being a boring and boorish Captain Obvious by even suggesting it but there you have it all in the spirit of trying to be helpful.

Speaking of being helpful, if you can't open it I'll e-mail it to you.

I found a mistake in the "Effect on Chain Length Adjustment" table. It was really a "How much length do I have to add to my chain to keep the wheel in the same spot" table.

Duh.

I've corrected the table and uploaded a new version (3).

I love my new 16/42 setup for the highway commute.
Shouldn't be any problem in the loose offroad slop. First gear and the clutch have plenty of yank.

Thanks fer the thread,
