Chain / Bicycle Chain

The chain of the bicycle is one of the key parts in the transmission of the pedaling force of the cyclist to the wheel-bicycle set, and therefore it is very important to carry out a good maintenance of this component of the bike.

Chain / Bicycle Chain

The bicycle chain is made up of the following pieces:

  • Chainring
  • Inside chainring
  • Pin
  • Cap
  • Turbo trainer

As spare parts for the chain can be purchased pins and "Quick chain closures" - "Chain quick realease", which is a piece of much value (and we can carry attached with insulating tape under the saddle as it does not weigh) if you want to be able to fix a chain Quickly during the bike route. In addition, the most common thing is to carry on the bicycle outputs a "stabbing-chains" That is the specific tool to be able to open and close the chain by any link, after a break. This chain-specific tool can be found in the Tools section of the Comonentes Searcher and CoreBicycle cycling accessories. It is important to know that there are specific tools to measure the wear of the chain and you can also find them in the Workshop-tools section.

It is very important to carry out an adequate maintenance of the chain, keeping it perfectly lubricated- oiled, to prolong its duration and avoid possible wear, or even breakage, of other parts of the Transmission groupset, such as change or rear derailleur. To keep the chain oiled, you can use:

- Chain - specific lubricating fats or oils (dry, moist,..) or,

- Chain Waxes that are perhaps more effective because they also protect, forming a thin layer around the surface of the chain, the adhesion of soil or dirt.

When buying a chain is important to note the number of speeds that has the transmission groupset-rear derailleur, as there are specific models for 9 speeds, 10 speeds, 11 speeds , etc.

Among the most important brands that manufacture chains we can find: KMC, Shimano, SRAM, Campagnolo, Yaban, Cinelli, Clarks, FSA, Dartmoor, Rant or BBB, among many others.
