Road Bike Chain

If you have been riding your bicycle for over 6 months and now your bicycle is not responding quickly when you try shifting gears and you feel your chain skipping when climbing or sprinting on your bike rides or races, your chain is probably worn out or has stretched out and needs to be replaced.

When replacing your chain it is important to know which brand of components your bike has and whether your bike is an 8, 9, 10 or 11-speed so that you can choose the correct road bike chain when making your purchase.

To replace your worn out and stretched out chain and start getting smoother shifting and pedaling on your bike rides or races, just click on one of the road bike chain images below to buy now a new bicycle chain from one of our highly recommended partner companies.
