(We sell a wide range of singlespeed and track chains at VeloSolo, all suitable for on or off-road use. All are designed to be less flexible laterally with tighter tolerances than typical geared chains and therfore offering improved performance for 'non-geared' drivetrains). If you need a basic chain tool please see the Cyclo tool further down which is suitable for any of our chains (more chain tools in the tool section too).
A superb option in 3/32" high spec chains and perfect for singlespeed use on or off-road. The KMC Z610HX has heat treated 'Bull's-Eye' riveting pins, stretch-resistant links and other features giving exceptional tensile strength of 1300 kg. Manufactured with specially shaped links.

One of those tools that not many cyclists think of buying but for the sake of a few £'s these are really useful. Even more so for singlespeeders and fixed wheel riders concentrating all the wear on one chainring and one cog. This is a precision made measure that tells you when your chain is nearly worn and ready for replacement - a worn chain will in turn prematurely wear your expensive chainring and cog.
Simply insert into the top run of the chain and as long as the end does not slot down between the links your chain is fine. There are two marks for 0.75% and 1% - aim to replace your chain by the 0.75% mark for best results.
NOTE: some pics show previously stocked and branded BBB model, we have left these up to illustrate method of use. Bike Hand model is exactly the same in use but does not come carded.
A superb value chain tool that sits below the heavier workshop YC-324 below. Exellent build quality with the advantage of an adjustable lower pin/plate support. Great value and reliable chain tool for use with any chain. Will work with any chain from singlespeed 3/32" and 1/8" chains to 8, 9 and 10 speed chains. Essential for fitting and adjusting any of our chains.
Important: please check this handy link for advice on how to use a chain tool if you have not used one before as we regret we cannot warranty chain tools damaged by incorrect use!
Workshop quality heavy duty adjustable chain tool. Large size (6" long approx). Usable with 3/32" and 1/8" chains. Highly recommended for frequent use especially with heavier duty 1/8" chains. Forged steel with rubber coated handle. Fully adjustable for any size chain and for making precise rivet adjustments as well as normal breaking, joining and shortening of chains. Complete with spare pin (available as spares too - please email to order). Twice the price of a cheap chain tool but far superior.
Important: please check this handy link for advice on how to use a chain tool if you have not used one before. In particular the correct positioning of the chain on the lower part of the tool to avoid damage to chain and tool. The upper part of the tool is not intended for splitting chains but just for easing tight links. When using the 324 tool place the chain in the lower part of the tool and first tighten up the lower support screw to rest against the base of the chain before splitting or joining the chain. We regret we cannot warranty chain tools damaged by incorrect use.
If you have a chain without a specific joining link or do not want to use a chain tool every time you want to remove the chain then this is a good old fashioned split link. Use to join one male end of a chain to the other male end.
Install with the closed end facing direction of travel, remove with a small screwdriver by prising open the split end. Sale is for pack of two for 1/8" chains only.
These are the newest type of joining link as included with many KMC chains. Very convenient to use as the chain can be split or joined without the use of any tools.
Please see this link for instructions on how to fit the 'snap-on' style link. Sale is for pack of two in 1/8" ('bagged') or 3/32" (carded) width.
At last we have a replacement half-link for the discontinued KMC models. Very handy little half-link in an attractive nickel finish, both ends male allowing the chain to be shortened by half the normal amount. Instead of removing a pair of links use this to connect one female link to another female link. A normal pair of links removes one inch from your total chain length, a half-link removes 1/2 an inch and allows the wheel to move back or forth by just 1/4 inch. Ideal for fine tuning chain length for precise positioning of the rear wheel or for 'magic gear' set-ups etc. See FAQ for half-link advice.
This is 1/8" thickness and male to male specific.
We have not seen any for three years or more but at last we have another supply! Male to female type. Use this to connect one male link to one female link. Ideal for fine tuning chain length for precise positioning of the rear wheel or for 'magic gear' set-ups etc. Please see FAQ for half-link advice.
This is 1/8" thickness and male to female specific.

Replacement model for the older YST model stocked previously. These are a brilliant 'get out of trouble' product if you have a frame with damaged or stripped bottom bracket threads. Instead of the usual threading, the cups have tapering sides to fit snugly into the BB shell. One side of the BB threads onto the other side pulling the two halves together within the frame.
These are a much better quality than the YST with very smooth 6002 sealed cartridge bearings. Install with a standard Shimano splined BB tool (tool section 26BB-2A). Suitable for 68mm BB shell. Two choices of length at 110mm or 113mm. JIS taper. Note: some photos show older YST - the Zenith appear at the top
Standard crank bolts for use with any bottom bracket (Tange, Shimano, Sugino etc) and any cotterless chainset. Grade 10.9 high tensile steel in black finish. Use with a 14mm socket or crank bolt tool (YC-161) etc. Sold as a pair.
As above but 'modern' allen key type with 'built-in' dust covers. For use with any bottom bracket (Tange, Shimano, Sugino etc) and any cotterless chainset. Chromed steel. Use with an 8mm allen key. Sold as a pair.
These are a high spec item by Sugino in Japan. All steel construction with brass washers. By using these instead of regular crank bolts you will not need a crank extractor tool to remove your chainset. However, these do require care in use. The 'cap' screws into the crank arm over the bolt, undoing the bolt allows the shoulder of the bolt to pull against the cap removing the arm. For use with any square taper bottom bracket and cotterless chainset. Sold as a pair.
Simple to install with just one regular 6mm Allen Key and the special Sugino tool (included). Important: To avoid damage please ensure these are fitted correctly. If the cap bolts are not properly fitted to your crank arms you may damage your crank threads. The crank threads must be perfectly clean and undamaged. Full fitting instructions included (please be sure to grease all parts).
Use with Shimano, Hope, Raceface, Sugino, Miche, Campagnolo etc 'Hollowtech', splined or square taper bottom brackets, MTB or road (English - NOT Italian). Ideal to replace lost spacers, provide additional spacers to fine tune chainline or as an upgrade to the plastic spacers supplied with most 'Hollowtech' BB's.

Pack of five includes three of 2.5mm and two of 1.0mm.
Paypal's basic shopping cart does not calculate international shipping (please see shipping page for full details).

For delivery outside the UK shipping is £4.50 (£2.00 extra) so if you purchase a cog from Europe or USA etc you will also need to purchase 1 x £2.00 shipping units.
