If you want to know how to check chain wear, it’s easy with this tool. Simply lock the the hook end of the checker tool into a chain link with inner plates as shown below.

Guide for when to replace your Bike Chain

Typically if your chain uses 10 or fewer rear gears then it should be replaced if your chain wear is greater than .75%. If you are using a system with 11 or more rear gears then your chain should be replaced if the wear is more than 1%. Bikes with just 2 sprockets should have chain replaced when wear is over 1%.

Replacing your bicycles chain sooner rather than later could prevent wear to your gears.
