Cost of parts not included in above prices.

*Special note about Chains:

Chains undergo something called “stretching”, which is really just a loosening of the pins and plates over time that effectively increases the spaces between pins. Once your chain is worn, and those spaces have increased, the teeth of the cassette will try to accommodate the slightly different distances between pins on the chain. A cassette adapts to a stretched chain by reducing the amount of material around each tooth – in other words, by wearing out. By keeping a fresh chain on the bike, the teeth of the cassette don’t have to go through that adaptation, and instead retain their original shape longer….hence they won’t need replaced as often…saving you some hard-earned cash!
