Good chains
by Colin S on 23/03/2014

Ive used Shimano SRAM and KMC chains and the KMC ones last the longest. Simple really. They also come with a good solid quick link which makes fitting a doddle. What else can you say

Chains Guide

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.

Anything else?

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.
