StarStarStarStarStar Must have for the most frequent part replacement

by
Ownership: one year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Easy to use and a must-have to check the part needing replacement arguably the most frequently, your chain!

Other Thoughts

Can get cheaper tools to measure your chain, but none have the gratifying feel of the CC-2

StarStarStarStarStar Great Choice

by
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Quality
Lets you know exactly where your chain is at for wear.

Cons

Too nice to carry on your bike all the time, but great for home or shop. A cheap go/nogo guage would be better to carry with you on a long bike trip.

Other Thoughts

Really nice product to have, especially if you live a long way from the nearest bike shop. Generally a chain doesn't last more than 2k miles.

StarStarStarStarStar Works great.

Ownership: a month
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Works great. Checked chains on my two road bikes. One passed; the other didn't. Replaced the failed chain and now, the drive train is working better, quieter, and smoother. Enough said. More expensive but more precise, well made tool.

Cons

None

StarStarStarStarStar check your chain often

Pros

well made and much better than no checker at all!!!

Cons

With the Park CC-2 you have to use TOUCH to remove the slack (there is a inherent lack of consistancy in that) and get your reading.

Other Thoughts

I believe the Progold chain checker (the one with the 1 to 10 scale on it) is more accurate because it uses GRAVITY (which is consistant). At 65- 70% you replace your chain. The first Progold checker I had fell all the way thru a new Shimano 6600 10 speed chain. I took it back to my LBS to calibrate it against their Progold chain checker. As I had suspected it was faulty so they replaced it. We got another one off the rack, tested them on the same chains and BINGO away I went, happy as a lark!!!
