    Had a Surly Cross Check - was totaled in recent accident. Sadly now just a Fuji Crosstown as a backup bike.

    Which of these two chain whips do I get?

    http://www.amazon.com/Avenir-Chain-W...6121199&sr=1-2

    Under this chain whip there are two sizes with no explanations.

    One is 1/2 by 1/8

    The other is 1/2 by 3/32

    Which do I get for a regular 9 speed and 8 speed cassette removal?

    Thanks !

    1/2 x 3/32.

    3/32" is the nominal width of derailleur chains. 1/8" is the width of single-speed chains. All modern chains are 1/2" between rollers, center-to-center.

    I use 1/2x1/8 on both 1/8 and 3/32 chains.
