- chain breaking
the chain on my road bike keeps on breaking. I’m not a slim lad weighing in at 95kg which no doubt will have a baring on the situation.
But, my key question is this. I clean my chain with petrol, then lub it up generously (the petrol is disposed of ethically). Is this going to “kill” my chain?Posted 4 years agojohnheSubscriber
My suggestion would be to change your lube. I used to break chains regularly until I started lubing them. I don’t clean them particularly well, but a decent lube seems to keep them from ever breaking. Obviously change them when the chain checker shows they’re getting close to knackered.Posted 4 years ago
