This is an old one. I originally posted "two chains to one front sprocket". I've since ammended that and now make it policy to do the front sprocket with every chain. The rear can be seen and is easy to inspect. The front, not so, and the last one was pretty bad at the end of life of two chains. Although it didn't cause any immediate problems, I just do the front with each chain now. On one it's not very bad but two seems a little too much.
Is the wear accellerated by the track riding you do? I guess what I'm asking is, for someone who rides often but not anything more than public twisties or the like could the "two chains to one front sprocket" rule of thumb still hold? Just curious.
Either way, good info!
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
