Chains and chainrings

Bike chains don’t last forever – even the best ones stretch and corrode over time. You can adjust the length for a while by adjusting the position of your rear wheel, but sooner or later the time will come for a replacement – and it’s best to do it before worn links start to wear down your sprockets and other elements in your drivetrain.

Bicycle chains

Lightweight chains are better for speed and performance, but they don’t tend to last as long as heavier, chunkier chains. Swap your old chain for a new one and you’ll notice the difference it makes to the responsiveness of your gear changes and smooth running of your drivetrain.

Brand chains

You can buy online from our wide range of standard chains, as well as specialist bike chains for 8, 9, 10 and 11-speed road and mountain bikes from top names like Shimano, Campagnolo and KMC.
