Every few weeks or months my chain always ends up getting a tight or bent link. And buying chains can be a lot when added up all the ones I have to buy. I have probably gone through 4 since early december. Is this normal???
My 02 4300 has the stock chain and I think it works better than the SRAM 8sp I have now. I guess the geo of my bruiser has an affect on it. Its so embarrasing pedaling and this big loud "chlink" skip happens. Oh well. I thought about buying a new 8sp sram chain for around 21 bucks on the interent instead of my bike stores 30 dollar price. Where can I get a cheap chain breaker from the internet too? I don't want to have to take the wheel off and stick it in the trunk of my moms car just to take it in
