Quick Tip #6 – What To Do With That Spare Length Of Mountain Bike Chain

Hey guys Rod from Sports Adventure here today with another quick tip.

And todays quick tip is just a handy item to carry in your tool bag.

Next time you’re out of the trails and what I do –

when I put on a new chain,

I check the chain length,

I remove the excess section of chain and those last few links and the old connecting link or the old powerlink I keep those in a bag add those with my toolkit and pop them into my backpack to keep with me for my next ride.

You just never know when you might need a couple links from a bent chain when you’re out about on the trails or you maybe able to help one of your fellow riders out a bit just get them home.

Alright thanks guys. Stay tuned tomorrow for you next quick tip

So keep in touch and get out on the trails.
