Video workshop: How to check for chain wear

Before it's too late!

Welcome to BikeRadar’s bike maintenance video series, produced in conjunction with Unior tools and What Mountain Bike.


This week, What Mountain Bike’s technical editor Justin Loretz shows you how to check for chain wear. This often neglected piece of maintenance could save you plenty of cash in the long run, as you’ll know when to change your chain before your cassette wears out and requires replacement too.


Over the next few months we’ll be featuring more mechanic’s tips, which are also part of a new cycle maintenance DVD that’ll be available with issue 128 of What Mountain Bike, on sale on 19 October.
