I've yet to have a chain driven bike where it was possible to put on a continuous chain. Have to either rivet or clip the master link after the chain has been snaked through the frame and (usually) swingarm...

A bike with an unbraced swingarm will need the arm at least partially pulled out to use an endless chain. A massive pain in the , but possible.

Looking again, yes I can see where it's possible with an unbraced swingarm. I agree that it would be a major pain in the to have to remove the swingarm to change a chain, when it would be much easier to learn to properly operate a chain riveting tool. But then again, I must be one of those bizarre people who like to follow the "work smarter, not harder" motto.
