Bike chains consists of alternately one link with outside plates and one link with inside plates. And the only way a chain will join up is outside plates to inside plates. This means that chain lengths are normally only adjustable by two full link length.

Enter the half link. The half link has outside plates at one end, but inside plates at the other, which makes it possible to adjust chain length with only one link. It's useful if you have a bike where there's limited room to adjust chain tension by moving the rear wheel.

What size half chain link do you need if you get a 25t sprocket?

Half links only come in two sizes, 1/8" and 3/32". Which one you need is determined by which chain you're running. Depending on which sprocket you had before a half link may not be enough.


How do you take a half link chain of a bmx?

If you're using a 1/2 x 3/32 chain (or "10-speed chain") on your BMX bike, you're out of luck. You can't half-link those chains. If you have a 1/2 x 1/8" chain, you can buy what's called a "half-link" (go figure!). I've seen them range from $2 to $10 and they go in place of 1 1/2 links in your chain to get you that ideal chain length if you find you don't have enough drop-out adjustment to prevent either a too loose or too tight chain.


How do you repair a bike chain?

Remove the damaged link, preferably with a chain breaker tool. If the rear wheel can be adjusted forward enough, you may be able just to put the chain back together again with the chain breaker tool. Or you may need to add a quick/master link, or a half link for it to reach around.
