1Bikr: how to check po using a ruler? Aug 14, 2017 15:09:54 GMT 8
spyghost: theory is that links with varying lengths will wear the drivetrain more compared to a consistently spaced one. 'they say' that it affects shifting as well - i don't know, i haven't experiemented on this yet, nor have experienced it first hand Aug 14, 2017 15:11:21 GMT 8
1Bikr: ive got to check my chain using a ruler when i got home, ive get an idea from the web. from the internet, worn chain may cause the cassette and chainring to wear. Aug 14, 2017 15:50:02 GMT 8
anarki: Check GMBN. There's a specific length when you need to replace just the chain, and another one when you need to replace both chain and cogs. Aug 15, 2017 3:06:10 GMT 8
simplej0ys: mukang masyadong hassle pa yang pag check mo, at baka magkamali pa ng results. might as well get a new chain Aug 15, 2017 6:02:57 GMT 8
spyghost: i also noticed that 11 speed chains elongate easily compared to lower gear versions... i changed my stock m8000 chain after a year, though i should have changed it after 8-9 months of use. at the 11-12th month i can already feel inconsistency in shifting Aug 15, 2017 6:13:16 GMT 8
spyghost: i also use the ruler method, though it would be better to get the 'drop-in' type of checker... just don't have time to go to shop to buy... too busy Aug 15, 2017 6:14:04 GMT 8
spyghost: according to a few articiles i've read, it's best to 'rotate chains' compared to replace when worn Aug 15, 2017 6:14:39 GMT 8
spyghost: from a brand new chain, replace it after 3-4 months, and repeat the cycle for 3-4 brand new chains. theory is that assuming all components are brand new, they would wear consistently. net effect is that you're always using a new/relatively new chain alwa Aug 15, 2017 6:16:36 GMT 8
spyghost: you'll just have to change all the chains once they are unusable (ie elongated) Aug 15, 2017 6:17:00 GMT 8
spyghost: magastos? i don't think so, you just advanced the purchase of chains and won't buy in the next few years. Aug 15, 2017 6:17:45 GMT 8
1Bikr: thanks po for the information and suggestion. Aug 15, 2017 7:48:48 GMT 8
1Bikr: so, if i replace my chains what would be the best option shimano, kmc, ybn or sram? Aug 15, 2017 7:50:15 GMT 8
1Bikr: just to clarify, after 3-4months used of a bnew chain then rotate the chain. after another 3-4 months, time to replace the chain? is my understanding correct? Aug 15, 2017 8:04:28 GMT 8
1Bikr: and after 3-4 cycles of rotating bnew chains, time to replace the components? Aug 15, 2017 8:05:27 GMT 8
spyghost: interval/cyle depends on use - use objective measurement. in my case it's 3 mo, 4 mo stretch, which is ~ 1k of use. brand of chain doesn't matter as long as it's compatible, though i'm using x01 chain for my m8k Aug 15, 2017 8:56:48 GMT 8
spyghost: reason for using x01 is a workaround for the backpedal issue of shimano on m8k on low gear (10/11). if you aren't bothered by this, any 11 speed chain will do for you. at certain points in the trail i backpedal if i need to kick down to hop forward. Aug 15, 2017 8:59:08 GMT 8
spyghost: it's not a guaranteed fix, but at least i was able to add few degrees of crank rotation without dropping the chain. this is considering that i'm not running an ideal chainline as well. my ring is outboard by 1mm, making low gear a bit more severe than id Aug 15, 2017 9:00:27 GMT 8
spyghost: ideal Aug 15, 2017 9:00:30 GMT 8
spyghost: i had to move my 1x ring (34t) further out otherwise it will hit the CS Aug 15, 2017 9:02:07 GMT 8
