Quick Tip #28 – The Homemade Gadget That Makes Replacing A Mountain Bike Chain A Breeze

Hey there Roddo from Sports Adventure with another quick tip.

When you’re having to replace or repair a chain what I have found in order to come up with a little bit of slack between the two ends of the chain either a new chain or making a repair to a link – just bend a little bit of wire just to hook two sections of the chain together>

Gives you a little bit of slack to play takes the tension out of the chain with the section that you are working on and makes it a lot easier work that section of chain with your chain breaker, make the repairs you need to and you are good to go.

Thanks guys have a great day I know I will.

Stay tuned tomorrow for you next quick tip.
