I took my bike in for its first 1k tune-up. While I was there the tech measured my chain with some tool I hadn't seen before. Not surprising, I'm not familiar with all bike tools. He said it was time to think about getting a new chain. After 1k miles?
It looked to me that the tool was new to him also. What chain measurement tools are out there? Could he just not have been using it properly or is there some possibility that I really do need a new chain after 1k?
