    Bikehut Chain Wear Checker

    The Bikehut Chain Wear Checker helps you stay one step ahead of the game. It’ll accurately give you the lowdown on the state of your chain so that you’ll know when it needs to be changed before it wears out altogether. A worn out chain can damage the bike sprockets and drivetrain and no one wants that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Assuming there’s quality control at the factory, there’s little that could go wrong with this tool. Easy to use. Glad I got this as all three of my bikes were in need of a change - who knew? Not me. Such a change in chainset when I replaced chain- the noise was the chain and nothing to do with the set up! One note of caution, the tool looks like an implement of torture and could be as it is pretty pointy. So keep it safely stored and don’t reach into a closed bag or box to get at it and you’ll be fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good chain gauge, with reservations. I chose this chain gauge because it was made of stainless steel, it had clear markings, and it seemed intuitive to use. The first time I used it, I placed the rounded section over one of the chain rollers, as suggested, and noticed that there was a slight bit of play between the roller and gauge, leaving me unsure if the gauge should be pulled towards the roller to check the measurement, or just left to float on the roller. I found that if the gauge was left to float, the gauge was reading 0.75, suggesting the chain was ready for replacing, but if the gauge was pulled towards the roller, it showed no chain wear. I measured the chain with an accurate steel ruler and the chain had no wear, so it seems the accurate way to use this gauge is to place the rounded section over a roller, then move the gauge slightly forward, in the direction of the measuring end, (so it butts up to the roller), the gauge is then measuring the distance from roller to roller, and eliminating the slight play in the rounded section.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best kind of technology- no moving parts no batteries cheap as chips, does the job and even manages to be aesthetic as well! If your bike has a chain you should have one.

Some of the parts we sell here at Halfords have been reconditioned. These will carry a Refundable Deposit or an extra surcharge amount. When you add one of these reconditioned items to your basket, we'll add this extra cost automatically.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
