It’s as unavoidable as death and taxes. There will come a time in your life as a cyclist when you need to change your bike’s chain. And Bike Addict is here to help you figure out which 12-speed chain you should get and can even assist you with installing it and give you tips and tricks as to taking care of it properly once you’ve found the right one.
There are many 12-speed bike chain manufacturers and different brands of drivetrains, but you’ll find the best of the best here at Bike Addict. We stock chains from KMC, Shimano, SRAM, and Taya, so you know you’re in great hands.
Sometimes it will be obvious that your 12-speed chain needs replacing. You may have smashed it into a rock, bent a link out of its shape some other way, or your chain may have snapped completely. In an emergency, you could possibly remove the broken section and refit the chain, but it’s still a good idea to invest in a new one as soon as you can after that.
There’s no set mileage when it comes to chain lifespans. Yours will be directly affected by how much you ride, what your drivetrain care process looks like, and how much power’s going through it.
You will be pleased to find out that, while there are many different options when it comes to price and name, choosing the right chain is a lot simpler than it seems. The most important thing is making sure it’s the right one for how many gears your bike has, and we’ve already established that you need a 12-speed chain!
Whether you’re unsure about what exactly you’re looking for or are ready to place an order, remember Bike Addict offers free shipping on bikes over R3 000* and accessories over R1 000.
