Why the need to care for our bicycle chains?
Firstly, the chain is one of the most heavily used parts of the bicycle, as it transmits power from your legs to the bike.
As most modern bikes use multiple gears, there is also the additional issue of wear and tear from constantly shifting up and down the sprockets.
Thirdly, the conditions that many bikes are put through like rain and mud exacerbate the problem even more by introducing elements like water and dirt.
So it's no surprise that chains are built really tough to withstand the rigors of cycling, but we still need to take care of them every once in a while!
