What pitch are bicycle chains?
All modern bicycle chains are made to the “one-half inch pitch” standard, meaning from rivet to rivet is nominally 0.5 inches. The sprocket teeth are cut for this same one-half inch standard to accept bicycle chains.
What is chain lock?
Chain locks are made up of a series of hardened steel links (usually inside a protective nylon sleeve) and a lock. The lock can be integrated into the chain, or it can be a separate padlock. Chain locks are far, far heavier than u-locks offering equivalent levels of security.
What is a hunter pocket watch?
A hunter-case pocket watch is a case with a spring-hinged circular metal lid or cover, that closes over the watch-dial and crystal, protecting them from dust, scratches and other damage or debris. A hunter-case pocket watch with a spring-ring chain is pictured at the top of this page.

Chains come in 3⁄32 in (2.4 mm), 1⁄8 in (3.2 mm), 5⁄32 in (4.0 mm), or 3⁄16 in (4.8 mm) roller widths, the internal width between the inner plates. 1⁄8 in (3.2 mm) chains are typically used on bikes with a single rear sprocket: those with coaster brakes, hub gears, fixed gears such as track bicycles, or BMX bikes.
Which is better Shimano or SRAM?
Shimano and SRAM both make quality products, but their approach and styles are different. Looking at the current component landscape, it can be said that Shimano is generally the more conservative of the two. Over the last decade, SRAM has pursued drivetrain innovation more aggressively.
