- Shimano10 speed chain rapid wear is it normal ?
Only had bike since September done about 350 miles .Just out of curiosity I stuck the chain checker on and it showed over .75 ? Yet when I measured it was 12 inches rivet to rivet ? To be on the safe side and save cassette I put a KMC replacement on.I know it’s been cruddy conditions but I still expect to get twice that use out of a chain ..Does 10spd wear that much quicker ?Posted 5 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I once wore a 9speed chain out in about 50 miles, it didn’t help that after the first 3 or so it was effectively dry. So it’s possible.
I’m getting the same if not more out of 10s than I was 9s though, although only 2 chains in so hard to say, and I’m probably SS’ing more in crap weather than I used to.Posted 5 years ago
