i just bought a sprocket like 2 months ago, oh and i put a big scratch in my bars, and my grip is torn like 3 inches

shit sucks dude... i have definitely gotten broken off from snapping a chain on many occasions.

I'd make sure your chain alignment is OK, and if you lube it and take good care of it it will hopefully not get brittle and snap as quickly. Once you notice it starting to stretch significantly it might be better to replace it before the inevitable chain-snap to faceplant...

quit biking over falling?
sorry to say this, but that's pussy shit, if you fall you fall. obviously something in your drive train is wrong.

also how are they breaking? like snapping links. or are they popping out at the pins?

depends on how its breaking.. but if your not pushing your pins in/out correctly when your removing or adding links it really weakens your chain. I snapped my interlock v2 chain 2 times in one day and realized im just retarded and the pins werent in correctly. so i tac welded those fuckers in. hasnt broken for about a month

If you going to quit over a broken chain then maybe you should.


Make sure its aligned. Make sure you sprocket isn't bent. Get a stronger chain.
