I cant see the difference
Is your path one loop or different strokes?

There's only a slight difference...

This is a diagram that I made for myself.
I've built many bikes and still have issues with the direction to install the chain.

There are 2 ways that a chain can be installed.

1. Using a bike mechanic stand

2. Without a bike mechanic stand.

I've done it both ways.
Still I need to have a reference. so I can install the chain correctly. :oops:

This is just an idea.
Use only one eye instead of 2 eyes (or whatever you call that chain link circular shape).
Stroke the path with solid line (orange) first that's narrower than the eye then, stroke path with brush using the eye, but not bother with Track Direction because it's just one eye.
This way might look better too because the shading will look at though light came from one direction consistent on every eye.
Here's one i tried but with Track Direction because my selected brush wasn't exactly circular. but i think it would look better it you didn't have to Track Direction.

That's a good solution and not one that I hadn't consider.
The project was a personal one and didn't really requite absolute perfection.

I went through the effort of making the chain link brush and wanted to use it in my diagram.

It didn't need to be perfect.
However, I do see how using the single eye/chain-ring, would make a much more consistent stroke overall.

Thanks again T. :thumbsup:

It used to allow delete but i turn that off just in case i link to some post and then it's gone in the future. If it's double post i just delete it :D. Delete it easy ... having broken links is very painful.
PS: or you can edit the 2nd post to say something like "double post"... and I'll delete it when i can. 8-)

That's understandable and I'll remember to alert you,
if I somehow create another double post.
I don't know why or how the double posts are occurring,
but it must be something I'm doing.
