    Yes, sorry

    As I said, as far as possible

    Yes - but you don't really need a calculator

    Don't overthink it - it's trial and error (very little error)

    Install your chosen Chainring
    Install your largest chosen sprocket
    Put your rear wheel forward as far as you can
    Install your new chain, measuring as you go, to see how much to cut off

    Everything else (chainline and slack) is fine tuning

    Yeah, I think I'm just over-thinking it because I've never done it before and I plan to stick with the same chainring but lose teeth on the sprocket. Which, given that I can't really pull the axle any further back than I currently have it, means I'll need a shorter chain. Which is fine, but I just don't want to over-shorten it and then have to put links back in, if I can avoid it.

    My current chain seems to have a quick link actually, though it seems to be different from the ones I'm used to using with my 10 speed chains, so I need to fathom how that works and if I can fit one to the new chain once I've bought and shortened it.

    Wow, I wonder who first thought of that? Just remember not to use a biopace ring!
