Things you might not know about your bike chain

A bike chain is one of the most essential bike parts. It transfers power from the pedals to the drive wheel of a bicycle and therefore propelling it. Without a bike chain, your bike wouldn’t function and therefore that is the reason why it is one of, if not the most important bike part.

When a bike chain is working properly, you don’t even realise it’s there – but when it’s not, it is more than likely the only thing you notice and only bike part you think about.

Bike Chain

Fact 1:

Some of the very first bikes didn’t have chains and even more interestingly, some still don’t. To move the bike forward, cyclists turned pedals attached directly to the front wheel. A cyclist using a bike like these could only increase their speed by either pedalling faster or replacing their front wheel with a large one. This is the reason why the penny-farthing bikes were created.

Fact 2:

Bicycle chains are more complicated than you expect. This is due to the fact that there are 116 links in a standard bike chain. If you are replacing a chain, you will need to adjust your chain depending on what type of bike you are riding. We advise you to use your old bike chain to match up the exact amount of links you will need on your new chain.

Fact 3:

How you ride your bike affects the life of your chain and therefore riding at a high cadence is not only more efficient but also cost-effective. If you pedal in high gears when they are not needed, it will put a lot of stress on the chain and as a result of this, significantly shorten its lifespan.

Above are the many reasons why a bike chain is such an important bike part.
