Well its that time again, the chain and cassette are in deserate need of replacement. How much will a new chain and cassette cost me? I don't really want anything expensive and top of the line. That being said i do want something that will work well and last
Also, where can i buy from?
Any suggestions will be apreciated
I went for a ride on Tuesday night and broke my chain (8 speed). Basically one end of a side plate pulled off and I was left with two bent plates with the pin still connected to one of them. It may have been due to shifting under power but I can't be sure.
Is this the "normal" way that chains break?
Hi all. Can anyone recommend a great chain lubricant that works well all year round? I used to be a big fan of Rock n' Roll but i found through winter that it went pear shaped. In the cold weather the particles within seperate from the liquid a bit like a Coopers Pale Ale. The when you apply it is kind of crappy. (During a warm summer day it's fine). Warming the bottle in the microwave or down the front of my pants for 10 mins did help but was a hassle (and sometimes looked weid!). I looked at White Lightning and it looks like it might be subject to the same problem.
I'm sure at the last check just a week or so back the old chain was < 0.7% but suddenly (after Muddy Xmas Cup) it's past that point and gone on to be just over 1.0%
