KMC 410s are 10 bucks. Find a friend with a chain tool and you have no excuse to not replace your chain.

Which way do you lock your bike?

Through this school year, I've noticed very, very few bikes locked up facing OUT of the bike racks, but I always lock my bike facing out.

Just wondering how the rest of SSFG does it.
