chain one link too short
#1
The chain on my exercise bike became too long over time and started "slipping".  So I took the chain off and took off one section (2 links - a female and male) and replaced the pin to complete the repair.  Now the chain is too short to put back on the bike - what I needed was a way to make it one link shorter (not one section=2 links).  Is there now a way to make the chain just one link longer?  Some sort of male to female single extension link? Thanks.

the chain sounds worn and should be replaced

Thanks - you were right.
I replaced the chain and all is well.  Of interest:  the pitch of the exercise bike chain (distance between links) is slightly longer than the typical bike 1/2 inch.  I had to get from manufacturer, not bike shop.

You must exercise a lot. Good for you. Glad to see you got a fix for it.
