Wondering When You Should Replace Your Chain? There's A Tool For That

We've all been there — your chain is jumping all over your cassette and falling off after bumps in the road. It's probably time for a new chain, but how do we make sure that it's not just a fickle derailleur?

The Park Tool CC-4 is a drop-in style gauge that measures bicycle chain wear. The laser-cut CC-4 accurately measures a long section of chain and strategically comes in contact with the chain in three places, quickly and easily taking the guesswork out of knowing when chain replacement is necessary.

A worn chain will cause poor shifting as well as accelerate drivetrain wear. The tool works on any 5 to 12-speed derailleur chain (including SRAM® AXS®) and is designed to accurately indicate when a chain reaches .5% and .75% wear, the points at which most chain manufacturers suggest replacement.


  • Lower the CC-4 onto the chain while keeping the gauge tip above the chain.
  • Apply and maintain tension on the chain. Note: It is crucial to maintain pressure on the chain in order to obtain an accurate reading.
  • While maintaining tension on the chain, push the chain onto the gauge tip to determine if the chain is worn.

Very simple tool for checking chain wear

I have a more comparative Park Tool for checking chain wear. I bought this one as a secondary check. So far both are giving similar readings.

Quality Tool

Simple tool, works as expected. Don't let a stretched chain prematurely wear your cassette.
