How to determine compatibility:

  1. Sprocket Count: The Positz S52 Bicycle Chain is designed to fit bicycles with 5, 6, 7 or 8 sprockets on the rear. Before making a purchase, ensure that your bike’s rear gear system matches this specification.
  2. Gear System: This chain is specifically engineered for 5 to 8 speed gear systems. It is important to verify that your bike’s gear system falls within this range to ensure proper compatibility.
  3. Chain Size: The Positz S52 chain has a size of 1/2 x 3/32in, which is a common size for many bicycles. Check your bike’s specifications or consult the manufacturer’s guidelines to confirm compatibility.

Maintenance and care:

To ensure optimal performance and longevity of your Positz S52 Bicycle Chain, proper maintenance is essential. Regular cleaning and lubrication will help keep your chain running smoothly and extend its lifespan.

We highly recommend using Squirt lube for the maintenance of your chain. Squirt lube is a premium bicycle chain lubricant that offers outstanding performance and durability. Its unique wax-based formula provides excellent lubrication while repelling dirt and grime, keeping your chain clean and reducing friction. To apply Squirt lube, simply clean your chain using a degreaser and allow it to dry. Then, apply a thin layer of Squirt lube to the inner parts of the chain, making sure to cover each link thoroughly. Let it dry for a few minutes, and you’re ready to ride.

By regularly applying Squirt lube and following a proper cleaning routine, you’ll enjoy smoother shifting, reduced chain noise, and prolonged chain life. Invest in the maintenance of your Positz S52 Bicycle Chain with Squirt lube and experience the benefits of a well-maintained and high-performing chain.

Purpose of deliberately longer chains:

116 links is too long for most bicycles, and you may wonder why bicycle chains are deliberately manufactured to be longer than what is required. This intentional design choice serves several important purposes and offers benefits to cyclists.

  1. Compatibility with Different Gear Ratios: Bicycles come in various configurations, featuring different gear ratios and sizes of front chainrings and rear cassettes. By manufacturing chains with extra length, they can accommodate a wide range of gear combinations. This ensures that the chain can be properly adjusted and used with different drivetrain setups without the need for purchasing a specific chain length for each variation.
  2. Easy Installation and Adjustment: Longer chains make the installation and adjustment process more convenient for both bike manufacturers and consumers. With a longer chain, it is easier to fit the chain onto the bike’s drivetrain during assembly. Additionally, when installing or replacing a chain, having extra links allows for proper tensioning and fine-tuning to achieve the ideal fit without the risk of the chain being too short.
  3. Chain Wear and Maintenance: Bicycle chains gradually wear out over time due to usage and exposure to various elements. By providing a longer chain, cyclists have the flexibility to remove links and adjust the chain length as it stretches and wears. This allows for better maintenance and prolongs the lifespan of the chain before it needs to be completely replaced.
  4. Customization and Modification: Some cyclists prefer to customize their bikes or make modifications to their drivetrain setup. A longer chain allows for these alterations, such as adding a larger cassette or a different chainring combination, without requiring the purchase of an entirely new chain.

Please note, we do not cut chains to length.
