Chains, do you know when yours is worn out?
One of the most critical, and often overlooked components to keeping your bike riding like new is your chain. With a properly cleaned, adjusted, and lubed chain, your bike will shift and transfer the power you put into the pedals efficiently. A rusty, grime filled chain will cause excess resistance, only making it harder to ride and have fun.
What are our recommendations for optimal life out of your chain?
-Cleaning the chain after muddy/wet rides using a chain cleaning tool, like this one from Finish Line.
-Lubricating the chain after cleaning and before your next ride. There are essentially two different kinds of lube, wet lube for riding in the wet weather, and dry lube which is optimal for basically all other conditions.
Over time your chain will wear out under even optimal riding conditions and maintenance, so feel free to come in and ask how to get your chain measured to know when you should replace it.
