A.How To Size A Bike Chain
When you get a new chain for your bicycle, you should be too hung up on the length. As long as there are around 116 links, you should have more than enough to properly size your chain. In most cases, a bike chain is too long, you need to shorten the chain.
The easiest way to size your bike chain is to lay it down next to your old chain and shorten the new one to match the old. But keep in mind that older chains may be a little loose, depending on how badly they need replacing.
Before you put your chain through the rear derailleur, pull the two ends of the chain together, so it's a snug fit. This should give you the correct bike chain length. You should have two chain links (or one-inch) of overlap and an extra half link where you will connect the chain.
Don't remove any extra links before double checking that the two ends of the chain will connect. Just to be on the safe side, you might want to count the links of your old chain and match it with the new chain.
B.Removing The Old Chain
When you're ready to remove the chain from your bike, you will need a chain breaker to break the chain. Before you remove the chain, shift the chain to the smallest chainring and the smallest cog.
If you're able, take the chain off of your front chainring or remove your rear wheel.
C.How To Tighten A Bike Chain
When your chain begins to wear out, it starts to stretch, and then it might skip over teeth on the sprocket. If you catch this problem soon enough, you might not need to replace the cassette or chainrings, but sometimes new parts are the best option.
Here are a few other ways to determine if you need a new bike chain:
Lift the chain off of the front chainring. Shift your gears into the smallest cog on the rear and the largest chainring in front, then life the chain. If you notice a big gap between the chain and the chainring its probably time to start shopping around for a new bike chain.
If you have a ruler handy, measure your chain with a ruler. Pick a rivet on the chain and line it up at the zero mark on the ruler. Next, count 23 rivets; your last rivet should be at the 12 mark. If your measurement is off by more than 1/16 its time for a new chain.
Using a chain checker tool is another effective way to see if you need a new chain. There are a couple different brands available that are slightly different but serve the same function.
D.Things To Remember When Choosing Your Bike Chain
Here are things to remember when selecting a new chain for your bicycle.
When picking out a bike chain, it must fit with the speeds of your bike. For the chain to function properly, it shouldn't be too snug or too loose.
While you're selecting a new bike chain, look for steel chains with hard rivets, these are more likely to be durable. Be prepared to pay a little more for durability and reliability.
EASE OF USE AND INSTALLATION
Using and installing a bike chain shouldn't be difficult but don't get too frustrated if it is at first.
If you choose the right bike chain, you should have minimal issues with using and installing them on your bicycle.
E. Bike Chain Maintenance
Before you ride, take a quick look at your chain and the gears. By keeping your chain lubricated, the bike will shift easier, and your drivetrain will have a longer life, too. Don't overdo the lubrication as it can actually attract dirt and other particles that can cause damage.
F. How To Clean Your Bike Chain
Even if your chains look relatively clean, you will want to use a rag and some degreaser and give your chain a quick wipedown. If your chains are looking gunky and really dirty, consider using a chain cleaning device.
After you've cleaned your bike chain and the degreaser is dry, apply some lubricant slowly onto the chain and focus on each link. If you ride in the rain or live in damp or humid environments, always use lube to keep your chain from rusting.
DO NOT CONNECT THE CHAIN WITH USED PINS!!!
