Gather round, boys and girls, for today’s bicycle commuting lesson. I would like to teach you a small bit about chain maintenance. Typically one wipes the gunk off of their chain every now and again. You know, just get the grit and the grime off of there. Make sure it doesn’t wear more quickly than it does. Of course you should also check your chain for wear regularly. Doing so when you wipe the gunk off of it is a fine idea.
What happens if you don’t take care of your chain?
This, and always at least a mile from your destination.
