Default Re: Upgraded chain

The chain that comes with these kits isn't the best, mine stretched significantly over 3 days of running, that could also be attributed to me riding up very steep hils and weighing 250. I replaced mine with KMC 415H free style chain, it was arond $13.00 and is much higher quality than the original. Another easy way the seperate chain without a chain breaker is to carefully grind down the pins on a bench grinder WEARING GLOVES, then put a chisle or large straight blade beater screwdriver between the side plates and tap it with a hammer. They will come right apart with no damage.
