    How are the sprockets? Worn sprockets can eat up chains because they no longer mesh properly.

    Hi Knute,
    I wonder if you can get one of those shaft drives from shimano and planetary hubs to fit your bicycle? A friend of mine got one on his dynamic and loves it , no problem with dirt. Take care Gerard

    Under those conditions, careful not to wear out the power source too!

    Hi Knute, yeah chain is a lot cheaper ,and available. Haven't found a retro fit kit yet either, looked at buying a Dymamic bike myself but could not talk my self into the price range. Got a Asama ,Sea to sky, for about 500 instead ,24 speed, disc brakes , front shocks ,aluminum frame and to save my back a body floater seat post. At 56 just wanted someting more comfortable and not wornout and obselete, vain attempt at staying in shape.Do agree with that video Murray posted 24 gears is way to many gears for my riding style. Well time to make stuff happen ,cheers Gerard

    Hi Knute,
    1500 to 2000k is why i have stayed with the CX /Gl and sold my CBX550f hate chain maintence. Dont ride the bicycle enough to wear chains out like you are doing, last bike went 20 years on the orginal chain. Well be safe and have a happy new year ! Gerard

    Uggh! I always dread the possibility of being "doored" by parked cars. Glad you're OK. As I was reading through this post, I thought of this handy device I use for cleaning my manually powered "two piston" powered bike chain I ride in Minnesota winters. The salt they put out to melt the snow and ice around here do dreadful things to the drivetrain of my winter mountain bike. Every couple of weeks I thoroughly clean my chain with this and then re-grease. It definitely helps extend the life of the chain a bit. Here's a link.
