And most of it's just debate to a religious degree on a topic that doesn't matter very much. I doubt any of us take it too seriously. It's a bit like bearing topics on inline skating forums.
1200 miles? You must have particularly powerfull legs. How often do these 10000 miles a year people change their chains ? and how often their casettes ? and following on from you, how often their rims ?Chris James said:... Given I would expect at least 1200 miles from my chain then it will cost me a penny a mile. Getting an extra 500 miles would only save me a fiver and probably take hours of work ...

Eek for the cost of a new chain on my 'bent. That's 2.5 normal chains powerlinked together. Luckily I get a lot more than 2000 miles per chain, and don't pay nearly as much as £40.mickle said:2000 miles per chain. £40 chain. 2p per mile. Bargain.

The irony is, although i put a fair effort into cleaning and lubing my chains now....i didnt always.gambatte said:Waiting for more figures from the experienced guys on here.
Also advice: Got a 8spd and a 9spd. How do you go about telling when a chain is worn, what equipment would be recommended (considering having 2 different chains)?
I get this too, but that's because come Friday my little leggsies are getting tired of all the hills, wind & rain!Whether or not this is actually noticable is another matter. I feel the difference between friday when the chain hasn't been cleaned for a week and monday when it normally has - but mondays may feel different anyway.
