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
    • MATERIAL Steel
    • COMPATIBLE Most chains
    • Rating 4.5

          Comments about Nashbar Chain Checker:

          This is a product that everyone should have in there tool box to save you a lot of money down the road if you put a 500 or more miles on you bike a year. A stretched chain wears out your gears and a chain is cheaper to replace than a gear pack and crank gears. It is real easy to use and only takes a few seconds to check you chain. It will also help prevent getting to the point of breaking a chain by letting you know it is stretched and you need to replace it.

            I used to check my chain with a ruler and basically it was a pain and messy. With this tool it couldn't be simpler or easier. Now I feel I'm replacing my chains when its time to not to soon and not to late.

                  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.
