Very simple to fit, a quality chain for the price, often overlooked but can't beat for value. Easy to miss when a chain needs replacing but this makes gear changes so much easier again. Probably the most overlooked part on the bike as it will work in a worn out state. Best buy for under £10 in my view.

What are chains?
The chain is the crucial element that drives the rest of your drivetrain.
Who needs a chain?
All conventional bikes have a chain and they don’t last forever. You will need to replace your chain if it breaks or if a chain checking tool shows it’s too worn.
What are the choices?
Chain choice can be bewildering – it’s crucial you get the right chain width for your bike. Most chains don’t list the width, instead stating the type of cassette it’s suitable for e.g. eight-speed or 11-speed. Some will list the width, though, such as 3/32in.
What should I buy with them?
Every chain needs chain lube to keep it running squeak free.
Don’t delay changing a worn chain. Not only are you at risk of being stranded when it snaps, but a worn chain can cause wear to the rest of your drivetrain, which can be a costly mistake.
