Follow GCN on YouTube:

If your chain breaks when you’re out on a ride, don’t panic. We have a couple of simple methods to repair a bike chain and get you home.

To repair a chain on the roadside you will need:
A chaintool
A powerlink, quicklink or master link

If you don’t have a powerlink or one of the special joining pins, you can still get home. You’ll need to put a bit less pressure on the pedals and change the chain before your next ride. Rejoining a chain using one of the existing pins is not recommended by any manufacturers.
