道路側鏈維護需要哪些工具


2

最近我走了很多公里。儘管我對鏈條進行了適當的維護(更換,清潔和潤滑)。總是會發生其中一個鏈接斷開,或者我與某人在一起,或者遇到鏈條有問題的某人。我總是隨身攜帶Topeak多功能工具,其中也包含這樣的鍊鍊接刪除工具(不知道它的含義)。

但是,它本身並不是緊急維修的最佳工具。我正在考慮攜帶一個或幾個額外的針腳,以便進行維修。同時,我還閱讀了您也可以使用的這些易於使用的鏈接。我的問題是:除了我已經得到的東西之外,您還建議我帶些什麼來進行自行車旅行?為什麼?

Get a small chain-tool to remove a broken link, like the one in your multitool, two or three adequate quick-links for the chain width that you use and the bit of chain that remained after you shortened your new chain to the correct length. Workshop quality chaintools are quite heavy to carry on a bike tour and the likelyhood of needing one rather small. As for helping out others with that kind of chain related emergency, it will only work, if they use the same type of chain that you use. You'd have to carry quite a number of different types of pins and/or quick-links!

With the afore mentioned tools and parts you can repair the chain if only one link breaks or put in several links at once if for instance some links get damaged.

You may also pack a small bottle of chain-lube if you take a really long trip that includes the possibility for rain.

Taking a piece of chain can be useful one day, but what is the likelihood? I say take a multitool with a chain-breaking tool, that you verified you are actually strong enough to use (some have very small leverage) and a quicklink. That's good enough for normal rides, unless you are going for a week on your own. Many other people don't take anything. Assess the dangers yourself. On a road bike you are less likely to do more than breaking a single link, on a mountain bike it may be more likely, depending on the kind of your riding.

If you are so worried that you need a full piece of chain you could also nee some spare spokes, tools for removing your cassette (including a wrench with enough leverage) or even a spare rear derailleur (apart from the usual spare hanger). And your torque wrench in case your stem or saddle becomes loose. Ad you will find out it is simply impossible to stuff everything in your saddle bag. Especially if you planned to take two spare tubes as well.
