I had a ybn mk918 chain and i had it for about 3 months and barely rid it and well.. its stretched like crazy, has tight and loose spots.. but what i want to know is.. what will happen if i continue to run this chain? like i also run it quite tight at the moment as it always hits the frame and that noise is really annoying.. but is it likely to snap?

the worst it can do is damage your sprocket bb or driver. but thats after a long time. just get a cheap kmc.

just get a new chain. it's alot cheaper than replacing the wear a stretched chain will cause. the wear wont happen quickly though. you have time to save up or whatever


I'm on the vital legit list!

Make sure you lube your chain because if not that will happen.

Sounds to me like your Sprockets bent.
