  1. Nice job. Thank you.

  2. Great Video!
    Really Clear step by step instructions.
    I'm off to get myself a chain tool and new chain.
    The old chain has become all twisted and knotted!
    Trying to fix It has really been testing my patience, can't wait to get the damn thing off!

  3. I'm guessing why do we cut the new chain shorter 1 link than the old one when we put it on is the old one been stretched, right?

  4. This is without a doubt the best video on the internet that shows how to change a chain. Thank you for the clear and calm manner in which you present everything. Fantastic work!

  8. Thank you. That was excellent. I bent a pin trying to remove it, so hopefully I can get a new one and do the job correctly.

  10. Better call Saul! Great vid. Now I have to check out your chain length video.

  11. Can you buy new chains separately??

  12. I've replaced the chain on my bike 3 times now, and I always come back and watch this video as a refresher. Thanks for the tutorial. By the way, I usually get about 1,500 miles on average before my chain needs replacement. How many miles do other cyclists here get on their bicycle chains?

  13. Thank you very much indeed, very informative and helpful. I agree with the comment by Yo Soy.

  14. Very good tutorial. Thanks!

  15. I find putting the chain through the front derailleur easier than from the rear cassette. Saves a lot of hassle. To me anyway.

  16. big big or small small both extremes will do I suppose ?
