I Waxed My Chain and You Should Too!

By Jerry Kirshman

imageWe've all heard the hype, "wax your chain, it's great, it's smooth, no grease, you'll go faster, it'll make you younger, etc. etc.  Well recently I did, and wow am I glad that I did it.  But I am getting ahead of myself…

I recently got a new bike.   Now unless you think I'm one of these cyclists that always has the latest thing – no, not here.  This was my first new bike in 18 years and holy cow  there have been a lot of changes and I'll talk

(How to wax a chain continues ...)

If you've ever wondered how to build a better gear profile for your bike, this is where to begin.  Simply input the cassette you use and the chainring sizes and Presto! - You get your gear ratios. 

You can add custom sizes, tires, etc. or pull-down from the menus. 

Title your configuration and it will show in the browser tab so you can have several 'up' at once to compare.

Download into CSV format or print too!
