15,000km on ONE Chain!? // Bike Chain Waxing Success!

15,000km from one chain… on a gravel bike!? I would not have believed anyone if they told me I’d get this many kms from a single chain, especially on a gravel bike. After doing the calculations it turns out it is possible with a regular maintenance schedule and using wax, not oil. And even with 15,000kms on the chain, Pedro’s Chain Checker wear tool shows no signs of wear!
