    Brilliant that, thanks   :152:
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    That’s pretty comprehensive 🤔
    I wonder who checks their chain beyond seeing anything exceptionally unusual or just to adjust the tension.
    I have an ‘e’ Scottoiler, have a regular ‘look’ at the chain and check the tension with an old credit card.   Rarely needs adjusting even after 16+k miles
    Full of enthusiasm - in all the wrong places

    My chain fubarred at 18k but it seemed to deteriorate a lot very quickly in the last  500 miles. Rear sprocket wear levels as expected nothing untoward but the front sprocket was very badly worn.
