I need some advice on chain length please!

I have a specialized road bike with Sora. It has a 50/34 compact chainset and an 11/32 cassette.

I have ordered a new wheelset and some 105 5700 shifters and mechs, a tiagra 12/30 cassette and a 10spd chain.

When I install all this awesome stuff, and it comes to the chain; I'm guessing I'd have to ignore the length of the old chain right? How do I know how long the new chain should be? Or is it as simple as having the new one 2 links shorter than the old one due to the new cassette having 2 less teeth on the largest sprocket?

Any help would be great thanks.

I always go by the large sprocket  and chainring (not through the derailleur) to get the length then like Dave mentioned the derailleur takes up the excess .

So you can sort of cope with your own child's birthday, you get to do the whole “three months to go!” And “2 months 18 days to go” and so on, while trying to get hold of that particular doll she wants that's been sold out since last Christmas, and that you resort to spending completely over the ...

My 8 year old girl playing PC games!

She has a tablet, 3ds, Wii, Ps3, Xbox360 and an Xbox One to play games on and she chooses to play PC.

She logged into a live server, set up a profile, (not using her real name or details) and is running around an open world playing puzzles and generally being nice to other players.

Time to introduce her to Steam! So proud! 

Edit: just found out it's a game called Roblox. A creation game for building your own games and levels and publishing them for other players.

I went on holiday in Limerick a few years ago before I started cycling. That peninsula is one place I'd love to revisit with the bike. It's such great fun in the rain. Love running in the rain too. I don't see why people use it as an excuse? Unless they are commuting to the office or something.
