It is said that since chain wear is strongly aggravated by dirt getting into the links, the lifetime of a chain depends mostly on how well it is cleaned/lubricated and doesn't depend so much on the mechanical load. To take care of your chain properly, we also offer bicycle care products, including oils and cleaners. Always remember that chains should be cleaned before lubrication – one of main rules for long chain life is never to lubricate a dirty chain, as this washes abrasive particles into the rollers. After the chain is clean, be sure to dry and lube it, wiping away any excess.
The right bicycle chain will make power output more efficient and aid smooth gear changes and replacing your chain regularly can prolong the life of your drivetrain. Interesting that many "Tour De France" participants wear out two or even three chains on their primary bike over the course of the three-week race.
