You're not always required to replace the chain. Just sayin, it's worked for me! ;)

caloso 05-08-10 11:03 PM

The chain I have now only has a couple of hundred miles on it, so we'll see how it sounds first.

Ygduf 05-08-10 11:07 PM

I rode my last chain/cassette combo for like 5000miles. Switched new chain, it worked fine. Switched cassette over to other bike with another new chain, it was fine. I think going forward I'll just ride a chain/cassette combo until it dies, then replace both.

caloso 05-08-10 11:10 PM

Only very slightly. Going from 11-26 to 12-26. I'd rather have a 16 than an 11.

I once had that mentality but soon realized that your shifting will suffer. I replace the chain at 0.75 wear, with the cheapest 10s chain I can find (currently the Sram 1070 from Performance).

Got the same cassette and a new chain (X10SL) to go with my pending Psimet wheelset w/PT rear hub.

I have that park tools chain check thing, the one with the sliding scale that reads 0-1%. Brand new Ultegra 10s chain read at over .05, into the "replace" zone straight out of the package. I'm not confident in the tool.

Tool does not work on EVERY chain the same. Really they are built for standardized chains. The tool I use is just a metal plate that looks like a tiny pick axe or something. You just drop it in and if it falls in, you replace chain, if it does not, you don't. However, I have noticed a few false readings, and I think it was merely because they were those new double crossed chains or whatever they are called.

Shimano doesn't have a tool specific for those 10 spds? Thought they did. Also keep in mind if the chain is "Waxed" instead of wet lubed it might make the wear seem different, but that would usually work in the opposite affect.

Ritchey torque key, Fizik bar tape, and -- for free -- some butterfly/trekking bars. I slapped the bars on my city bike, and I'll see if I like them. I can already imagine tearing off the foam grips and using bar tape instead.
