So I should be receiving my new chain and rear sprocket for the track bike soon, duing my research I found this classic thread that come complete with pictures. http://bcsportbikes.com/forum/showth...=chain+install
So how many days did it finally take?
So far i'm thinking the chain should be riveted, and that I should have a chain breaker tool. Are these available at Canadian Tire?
any tips? as I've never actually replaced a chain before..
This is for my track bike, and I don't really think it should be necessary to trailer my bike over to the shop to get a chain installed, i'd rather save myself that kind of extra work. I do most of my own bike work, so this should be fairly routine, eh? Of course I saw some new prices at Mspeed, I could get my forks fluid changed, and get my suspension setup, hmm...
Bernie thanks for this tip (found in another thread). It seems pretty brilliant. I will have to try it..Here's a quick Motocross trick for you..... Yes, it's to the left. Now, Put the chain back on and secure the nut with a rachet or breaker bar to the frame or peg........Now turn the back wheel by hand. Big sprocket in the back will over power the one in the front and spin off the nut.
