Make sure the bike is off . Grab the chain with both hands in the middle of the bottom rung attempt to pull it apart... one hand goes towards the front the other towards the back. If you feel a lot of play it's time to get a new one. Or grab it at the back of the rear sprocket and attempt to pull it away from the sprocket. If you see more then 1/2 a tooth replace it.,,,

Bike chain broken, how to fix this?


Sometimes all it takes is a master link or "quick link," but you can't count on that. How to fix it depends on several factors. There are different chains for the various number of cogs/gears on the rear of the bike, and an older chain may require a different procedure than a newer one. Further, if the chain is badly worn it may need to be replaced, but then may not mesh well if the gears aren't replaced as well. Finally, just taking out the rest of the link (one full link is one outer and one inner) may make the chain too short, which could damage the bike.

It's best to take the chain and bike into a bike shop, or a bike co-op if there's one available. If you really want to know all the in's and out's see this link: Chain Maintenance

Bike chain


With a chain splitter! It's a good idea to change the front and rear sprockets too so buy the lot when you're buying the chain. Loosen the tension on the chain tensioners on the rear wheel. Split the links. Remove chain. Remove and replace sprockets. Replace chain and be sure to use a chain riveter to sort out the joint. Don't be tempted to use a split link as your bike is too big and powerful for one. Adjust your chain tension checking for tight spots etc. Apply lube and enjoy!

What size chain do i need for this bike


Why don't you just take off the old chain and take it with you to the bike store, since you have to return your new chain anyway and buy a new one. You don't even need to know the size, because they will match the old chain with the new chain. No guesswork required.

It sounds like you are dealing with a stretched chain. If the chain will not tension any further, you may be looking at the need to purchase a new chain. Use your model and serial number at the following link to order a new chain.

Chain placement on Next 21 gear mountain Bike


You haven't actually asked a question, so I am guessing that you want to know how to replace a bicycle chain on a 21 speed bike. To remove the chain you need to use a chain tool that presses one of the pins out of the one of the chain links (any link, there is no master link). To put the new chain on you use the chain tool to press the pin in. This is just a little tricky with a chain tool, but it's just about impossible without it. They sell these tools at bike shops and maybe even at Wal-mart. Take a look at this link to see a what I'm talking about. http://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/chain-installation-derailleur-bikes By the way, Park tools are very good quality for the money.

Chain Broke on a Huffy Tundra 18 speed 26" bike. I need to know the size chain to replace or the master link/chain connector to fix the chain.


if the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install ($8-$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

How to put a chain on?


Your question is not entirely clear. If you are trying to replace your existing chain with a new one, then you will need a special tool (chain breaker) to remove it. Here is a link to a video on how to do it.

You may also want to consider getting a quick release chain link for the future to make the job easier.

If you done have access to a chain breaker, then I suggest you take the bike to a bike store. Replacing a chain is cheap and can be done fast.
