Just installed a DID roller chain for $42. It is better quality then the stock Diamond. Why are some of you purchasing $150 chains? Why?
I've got a family and little enough time to ride as it is, it's just easier for me.
I must be weird, I actually enjoy doing maintenance on my bike. (Except the whole waiting parts part). I quick detail it before almost every ride and do a full detail once out twice a week. Always checking the oil, checking the chain tension and oiling, clean the carb on a fairly regular basis... I just enjoy being 1 with my bike/s. It's almost like we communicate with each other. Even when I'm out riding, I listen to what the bike has to say and I address everything that comes to my attention. So cleaning the chain and oiling it every couple weeks gives me something to do, to keep my idle hands at bay. Plus, being this obsessed helps me find problems that may have normally been over looked, like the blown intake gaskets that had me baffled as to why I couldn't tune the carb just right. Anyways. Just wanted to throw that out there.Scottie
I like working on my bike too but I'd much rather ride and I just don't have as much time as I did when I was younger. Scott
+1Same here.They have so much on their head: the commute, the job and all that. But she does the checks, and is interested in the debriefings.
