    I'm rebuilding an old Schwinn with a 26" frame. What length Chain do I need? Should I buy long and cut it down. How would I do that?

    Not enough info here... does it have a derailleur? Breaking a chain is no big deal, you need a special tool which is cheap and easy to use once you get the hang of it. Put the chain together with a quick link. At your LBS you can look at (buy) a quick link and see how it works.
