    Default 3 fingers bike on stand or bike on floor

    When adjusting chain, is the 3 fingers behind chain glide measurement technique done when bike is on stand or when bike is on floor? Sorry if dumb question.

    And for us Americans - 2.25" while on the stand. Actually, I like metric better.
