Question about Diamondback Octane Jr Boy's Mountain Bike (20Inch Wheels)
Even though chains seem like the can't get twisted, they still can. Rivets in the individual links can become bent, and the links themselves can become bent as well. Also, your chain can be removed, and its a simple process. Although, getting the chain back on sometimes is an excercise in futility.
To remove your chain it's easiest to turn your bicycle upsiode down so that it's resting on the handle bars and the seat. Now you need to look for the master link. This link has a different shape than the other links. This link is designed to snap into place. However, it can be snapped apart for jus this type of scenario. Often, most links resemble an 8. And just as often, the master link is a simple oval shape. Once you have found that master link, use a pair of flathead screwdrivers and pry the link apart. Now that chain is apart, you can easily remove the chain from the bicycle and straighten it out. This will often remove any odd kinks in the chain itself, but be sure you look the chain over for any signs of link damage.
