To alleviate poor shifting & uneven drive train wear, manufacturers recommend chain replacement before rear cog replacement. Now you can quickly & accurately determine the wear & stretch of any chain with the Park Tool Chain Checker. Simply insert the Chain Checker’s pins into two links, press the swing arm gauge tight, & then check the gauge window for an accurate reading.
CC-2 Features The CC-2 is 10- & 11-speed compatible. For the modern 9- & 10-speed chains, replace chain at or just before the 0.75% readings. For an 11-speed chain, replace at or just before the 0.5% reading.
We Aren’t Your Average Bike Shop
But make no mistake. We are a bike shop.
We sell the world’s best rides, from Specialized’s unparalleled racing sleds to some of the grittiest, take-no-prisoners Cyclocross and Mountain Crushers by Focus and Fuji. For you bike enthusiasts not wanting a podium finish, we have hybrid bikes made by both of these brands as well as and eye-catching, work-of-art commuter bikes by Biria. Add an extensive line of parts, accessories and a bike racer turned wrench turner and, yeah, you’ve got one heck of a bike shop.
But there’s more.
We know that cycling isn’t just a sport, it’s a lifestyle. A culture. That’s why we carry original cycling-themed artwork, glassware, handmade bike badges, jewelry and apparel to satisfy your thirst for all things two-wheeled. Need a gift for a bike-riding buddy? We’re your shop. And, for all the Femmes out there who’ve been frustrated at the lack of selection bike shops have for them (co-owner Rebecca was one of them!), fret no more. Just head on over to IBW.
