Assembly

<Using missing-link pliers
This chain comes standard with a missing-link. The inclusion of this missing link makes it very easy to mount the chain, but is also ideal for when you want to give you bike a deep clean. To open and close this missing-link you need a pair of missing-link pliers, which you can find here.

Cut to length using a chain breaker
When you buy a chain, it's always too long. This means that the chain always needs to be cut down to the correct length. In order to do this, the chain needs to be broken with a chain breaker tool. Our range of chain breakers can be found here. Make sure that you choose a chain breaker tool for the right speed chain. Some multi-tools also include a chain breaker.

Tips for mounting
When you fit or remove a chain it's helpful to remove the tension from the section where you are breaking the chain. You can do this using a little hook or an old spoke, but some chain breaker tools include a little hook precisely for this. You insert the hook between the area in which you want to work, thus removing the chain tension locally. You can find a detailed guide on replacing your chain here.

Measure chain wear regularly
With a chain checker tool you can easily check your chain wear, so that you can replace it timeously. You can find these tools here.

User tips

How often should I clean my bike? Regular cleaning ensures that the parts on your bike will last longer, which of course means that you can enjoy cycling happiness for longer too. How often you should clean is largely decided by the sort of weather conditions you ride in. Are you always out there, come rain or shine, or are you strictly a fair-weather cyclist? All this influences the degree of wear, so some of us have to clean our bikes more often than others. Therefore, use the plan below as a guideline:

October to March:
• Clean every 200 km
• Rinse off after every ride
• Dry and lubricate the chain after every ride
• Let the bike dry at room temperature

April to September
• Clean every 300km
• Rinse off after a ride in the rain
• Dry and lubricate the chain after washing or rinsing
• Let the bike dry at room temperature
