Funny how you can get caught chasing shadows! All the while I was puzzled by the link being in spec but everything revolving around it, turns out it is the link two links back from the link pin, whilst all the gaps between rollers are between 25.80 and 26.25 the gap of the offending one is 27.50mm almost 2mm larger causing the trailing links to ride up and maybe the sprockets are worn enough to allow this to happen. New chain hopefully will fix the problem if not new sprocks as well.

Still you can have a second master link , getting rid of this deffective link. It depends on how old is this chain and whether or not you don't care about trashing it.

Has not a tight spot in a chain always been somewhat normal? I mean every bike I have ever had has had a tight spot in the chain, although I guess it never was cause for concern until now. Thanks! Lol.
