Hey Luke, awesome write up. But you know you're still going to get that thread, probably within a week asking "Looking to buy a new chain and sprocket, any suggestions".

But still mad props to you.

It is true that the 520,525 and 530 chains all share the same pitch. However they do not share chain width's. Which means that you cannot mix and match them. The definition that I presented on pitch is still correct, as it is still measured from pin to pin. I also noted that the different chains will also have a different widths for the different pitches. Which is not technically correct as you have mentioned, due to the fact that the 520,525 & 530 chains share the same pitch. However chain sizing is set by the 520, 525, 530 etc., denomination and that number represents the pitch of the chain and other sizing information within it's sizing code. My intention was to eliminate confusion about chain sizes and to clarify that one may not mix and match them. For further technical reference here is a sizing chart for the different chain sizes:

Quick question, what exactly is "anti squat"?
first, squat is the compression of the rear suspension and transfer of weight to the rear tire under acceleration. just like the compression of the front suspension and weight transfer to the front tire under braking. Due to the geometry of the swingarm, sprockets and chain, the force in the chain can be used to counteract that weight transfer. this force is known as anti-squat.

great write up luke.
