  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'd recommend either the Shimano TL-CN42 or maybe Pedro's Chain Checker Plus over this Park Tool item as recommended in the link below. Pins can also be bent fairly easily when handed over to a ham fisted friend... I like how it enables you to determine the level of wear you are comfortable with; some like to replace at 0.5%, others will push to 0.75%. This is a cool feature over the go/no-go styles.

Park tool Chain Checker

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Works great for making sure your chain isn't stretched out too much. A little steep on the price but a good tool to have.

Cheap & Easy To Use

    I got caught having to replace both my chain and cassette a few weeks ago and won't let that happen again with this handy tool. It's cheap and easy to use. Make sure to initially check your chain as a baseline and to build familiarity with the checker.

    Must own

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    way cheaper than guessing. We use this tool in here in the Backcountry.com Retail Bike Shop in salt lake city.

    Cheaper than a new cassette

      If you've ever made the mistake of running your chain too long, and needing to replace your cassette as a result, then spending less than $30 on a chain checker is money well spent. Just need to remember to check your your chain regularly.

      Perfect...

        Checked a new chain against an old one with this.
        Dead on accurate. A bit OCD to own but worth it.
