How often should I change my chain on my bike. I have between 1200 to 1400 miles on the chain that is presently on my bike. I am not a hard charger on the bike, and I have keep it cleaned and lubed. Thx for any help. :rolleyes:

Basic topics like this have been discussed many times. Here's a link to one, which decribes the proper way to check for elongation. A very well maintained chain can actually last up 10,000 miles, maybe even more, but as little as 2000 seems to be common. It all depends on your riding conditions and maintenance technique.
