It is weird to think that a chain is a consumable part on a bike, but if you ride your bike enough you should check your chain and make sure that it is not worn out. A worn out chain can and will cause you issues and can be very expensive. Some of the issues that you can encounter are skipping of the chain when you put power on the pedals the chain does not fully engage and causes a slipping feeling, this can cause you to crash. Premature wear of the chainrings and cassette which can get expensive. I would suggest that you check your chain at least every year or more if you ride frequently. Stop by the shop and we can do it quickly for you and let you know if you need replacement. The video below will give you an idea of when to replace your chain.
