How To Repair a Bicycle Chain
This is a quick tutorial on repairing bike chains.
The bike that I am doing the repair on looks kind of beat up because it has traveled alot of distance and has seen alot of extreme weather conditions. It has survived through daily use in 3 Canadian winters and this is the first time the chain has failed.
Thanks for watching, please leave comments and SUBSCRIBE for more bike maintenance videos.
excellent video thankyou
Perfect training video!! To the point and very informative! Even provided preventative repair for how or why a chain will continue to skip (old versus new). Thanks!!
Thank you for the video. Question regarding the pins, you show that you can reuse the pins by pushing them back, but is it advisable/better to replace them instead??
Excellent video. Clear, informative and with good practical demonstration. I also appreciated the information and advice at the end about when to switch to a new chain or cassette. …Oh, and I liked the fact that the bike looked "beat up" rather than some it being some brand new model in a bright shiny bike shop. Many thanks for the posting.
5:25 Every video I've seen has the pin connected to the chain without showing HOW MUCH OF A PAIN IN THE ASS THIS IS. Lol. I've been at it 1 HOUR now and still can't get the pin back into the chain.
Thanks I learned some stuff about working on bike chain!
Another excellent video.
I have a damaged SRAM chain, and considered exactly the same repair. However, I have some doubts with the pins. The pin what you put back, won't loosen up? I started to checking on e.g. Shimano chain connecting pin, however since 2011 you may have some experience with used pins. Were it good till the end of the chain's life? If yes, I will just put back the visually good pins.
Hi, can you make a video how to clean rusty chains on a bike that served for the whole winter? What lubrication you advise, etc. Btw. I truly love your videos, because they show "real" bikes, not expensive super-clean one!
great video. thanks a bunch!!!
Thanks ! a simple and very usefull video
Excellent video—thank you!
Thanks for the video.I ride 10-12 miles a day 7 days a week and I've had two flat tires within the last 4 months.Had all my tools and a spare tubes & portable hand pump being prepared saved the day and a long brutally hot walk home pulling a loaded down bicycle cargo trailer each time.Both times I was back on the road in 30 minutes.Plus I carry a patch kit and a chain repair tool kit.Got to know how to do roadside repairs.
Thank you very much for your informative video.
Useful video, thanks.
For way too many years I have only ever fully removed the pin but maybe 5 times got it back in ! so I watched this and it worked far far better and with ease great video thank you for uploading this.
I've been a Automobile Dealership Technician for 27 years and have always ridden a newer bike and haven't had the need to repair a chain..Until last week. I had a chain failure and I was 22 miles from my destination so I had to watch this video on the side of the road, broke out my chain tool and repaired my chain and was back on the road in under half an hour. Not saying I wouldn't have figured it out without the video but it sure made the repair easier and faster. Thanks!
Great video. Thanks.
Much appreciated — now, after twenty years of long-distance cycling, I know how to do it!
Excellent! The only person who explained that you're not meant to the whole pin out. It's all so clear now.
Thanks. Very precise on the instruction, and well edited image.
Great tutorial, great camera angle. Thank you from the UK.
