Ok, i'm not sure why it is doing this but as i pedal now my bike makes a loud snap sound, any suggestions as to what it may be?

Your chain is skipping over a tooth.

Which in-turn would be why the chain is skipping a few teeth.

If your chain is honestly that long, how the fuck do you manage to ride without the chain popping off either the freewheel/cog or chainwheel? Or are you a n00b and have a chain guard on your bike? lol

If you get the Shadow Interlock 2, you NEED the Park CT-2 Chain breaker.
Trust me, I know. I've broken 3 chain breakers so far, and 1 was a motorocycle one just trying to get 1 damn link off.

Nope, it's harder. I've used my 4 1/2" angle grinder to cut links off...

no u dont cut of the link, u grind down that pin then u use a punch and hammer it out

With the interlock chains, you can't do that. It's just that tight.

that does make sense, kinda

move not just yur tire but your wheel and it tightens the chain
