Bike chain is binding

Recommended Posts

My bike chain is binding. The links are bunching up, how do I fix it and what do I use to keep it loose? I bought the bike used and am still try'n to work out alll the bugs. :)

oil it well, then ride it for a short distance, then remove it and soak it again. If it still binds, then it is time for a new chain; always replace the sprockets when you replace your chain

Everytime I had one do that it was toast. You can try soaking it, but you are most likely looking at buying a new one.

Take it off and throw it away,go buy a good NON O RING chain,keep it oiled and it wont bined.Dirt gets in between the o rings and causes binding,usually its irreversable.
