A broken bike chain means an unrideable bike. Bike chains are some of the most frequently replaced bike parts, and we sell a lot of them. Using a bike chain breaker, you can adjust the number of links on your bike's chain as necessary. Bike chains are sold in pre-cut lengths, and the savvy cyclist will usually select a size longer than needed and tailor the length to their bike's specifications.Bike Chain (1/2" Pitch)
Instead of their ANSI number, bike chains are most often referred to by the roller width; most commonly 1/8" or 3/32" size. The pitch is always 1/2".1/8" chain
is most often used on bicycles with coaster brakes such as single speed cruisers and BMX bikes.3/32" Chain
is found on most bikes that use derailleurs such as road bikes, racers, and mountain bikes.Note:
