To test the new chain and the bike in general, I did a little test round today. It went really well! The new chain feels much better than the old one. So I am kind of happy that I had to change it before the long tour starts. Also, this was the first time that I changed a SRAM chain. Up to now I always used Shimano. SRAM comes with these two-piece chain links. They are very convenient to use and since I ordered some extra, I won’t need to bring a piece of chain for potential chain fixes. So, all good so far! Tomorrow will be the great packing day and Sunday the take-off! I am getting excited!
