How to put a chain back on

Posted

I have found that unless the chain jams you can lift it back on with the front changer without stopping.  If it comes off outside the front rings keep pedalling and change down onto to small ring, the arm of the front changer holds the chain up and steers it back on.  If it comes off the inside do the reverse and change up onto the big ring and again the changer arm will lift it on back. As I said no good if the chain jams, then you have to get your hands dirty.

carry a pair of disposable latex gloves if your chain isn't a shining new one like in the video

What's that thing at the back that you click forward to loosen chain, and how do you put it back again - just push?

My bike chain used to fall off all the time. Wish I'd had this video back then.
