- Chain at 0.75…..replace or ride it to death?
Found my chain checker thingy and thought I’d hold it up to my bikes. Was disappointed when the checker fell through my chain at 0.5. At 0.75 it just goes through with some pressure.
Bike was new in Feb last year. According to Strava I’ve covered 1700km in that time, but an embarrassing amount of that was with uplift so no real wear on the chain.
Replace now and hope for the best or run it into the ground and replace sram cassette with a sunrace offering that doesn’t yet exist?Posted 11 months agoPawsy_BearSubscriber
Ive noted chain checkers vary between makes. I measured a new chain with mine and its about 0.75 with a park chain tool. So I run mine to about 0.9-1.0. Not had a problem. When you change it measure the new chain to see what you checker thinks and add 0.25 would be my advice. When Ive run a chainset to death the only issue was I had to keep increasing the B tension screw.Posted 11 months ago
