Nashbar Chain Checker
This little tool is essential in helping you keep your chain running smoothly and shifting properly. As a chain wears, shift quality deteriorates and wear on other components increases -- especially cassettes. The Chain Checker allows you to quantify wear quickly and easily.
  • Insert the notched end of the gauge into your chain and lower the T end onto the chain
  • If the T easily inserts into the link, the chain is worn and should be replaced
  • Most chain manufacturers recommend replacement if wear is between .75% and 1%
  • Laser-cut steel for absolute precision
  • Nashbar Chain Checker
    • MFPARTNUMBER YE CHOU YC-503
    • MATERIAL Steel
    • COMPATIBLE Most chains
    • Rating 4.5

            Comments about Nashbar Chain Checker:

            Similar to the Park Tool CC-3.2 and works about the same. Where the CC-3.2 measures 0.50% and 0.75% wear, the BN-CC checks to 0.75% and 1.0%.
            I rebuild old bikes for resale and IMO the BN-CC is just fine for recreational use. If you're fussy about your chains, you might prefer the Park Tool version for catching wear sooner.
            The double hook on the end of the BN version seemed a bit overly complicated at first, probably in comparison with the single hook on the CC-3.2. No matter. The BN-CC is quick and simple.

              It hard justiy why a piece of stamped metal should be priced so high. It is a good go - no go gauge for chain checking. It is rugged. Only purchased it because its price was more reasonable when on sale.

                  This is a cheap way to check your chain for stretch. It's good to keep on top of wear before it's too late and you have to buy a new chain and cassette. It's easy to use and keep in your toolbox.
