OCBG’s Important Tip of the Month: Check Your Chain!
September 3rd, 2010

If you haven’t checked your chain lately, it is important that you know that extreme chain wear can cause major damage to your entire drive train, costing you plenty of unnecessary $$$! It is one of the #1 reasons for complete drive train replacement.

What can you do to avoid this situation?

Check your chain often, especially for stretch, the purchase of a good chain checker can save you alot of money and is an easy way to gage the stretch on your chain. If you don’t know how to use a chain checker, bring it in for an evaluation every couple months, and make sure you get a free evaluation and bring it to a shop you trust. If your chain is worn, replace it with a new one before you start changing components, unless extreme chain stretch is evident. Overall note: Don’t “push it” with your chain, make sure to catch it early, and replace when needed.
