Bicycle Chain Wear

Before mechanical approach, remember to read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the chain.

Check with a chain tool

This is the most reliable method. Obtain an chain wear indicator.

Here our indicator has a meter that will read the provided information data. Place the indicator on the top of the chain. The two points are placed between the links.

With your fingers, push the gauge, which has the effect of pushing up the stems of the indicator on the extremities of the links.

You can read the given measure for carbon bike wheel listed on BUSINESSJUST.

How to read values ?

  1. For a 10-speed chain: + 0.75%, the chain should be replaced quickly to avoid changing gears.
  2. For a 11-speed chain: + 0.50%, the chain should be replaced quickly to avoid changing gears.
  3. + 1%, chain and sprockets to replace simultaneously, trays also may be worn.

Control without a tool chain (rougher)

To know the state of your chain wear:

  • When it can be strongly moved laterally, have it replaced.
  • Pull vertically on a link at the plate, the game should not exceed half the height of a tooth.If the game is more important, have it replaced.
  • If rust appears on the chain, it is imperative to appoint a replacement to avoid transmitting the oxidation on the sprockets of the cassette or the pedals.

Replacing the cassette sprockets

We recommend replacing the chain simultaneously when changing the cassette of the rear wheel. These two elements, chain and sprockets are the main parts of the transmision of your bike. The compatibility of a new chain and sprockets worn teeth is poor. The chain will tend to jump when you set a dancer, for example, or when a more powerful effort.
