  1. Hi Guys I run a SRAM X01 1x11 drive train. After almost every ride I clean my chain by removing it and shaking it around in paraffin, rinsing throughly with water and then relubing with Smoove chain lube once dry. I use a park tool CC-3.2 chain wear gauge to monitor wear and replace chains when they reach 0.5% wear. I do this because of the price of X01 cassettes and chain rings. My issue is that I only get about 500kms out of a KMC or SRAM chain riding in mixed Gauteng conditions. Is this normal?
  2. Hi I switched to a E Thirteen cassette 9 - 46 11 speed and need to replace chains every +- 300 - 400 km. Any one with similar problem. Using KMC chain.
  3. So my KHS Flite I bought for a bargain on the Hub Classifieds is second hand off course. So after washing her after the R4S on sunday, I noticed the following. The Chain seem to be quite badly stretched . From what I can see the Cassette is not to badly worn, neither is my big ring. My Small ring is showing some Shark Fin patterns. So my question is, based on the pictures what needs to be replaced (on a budget of course).
