Bicycle Maintenance & Repairs : How to Fix a Bike Chain That Has Fallen Off


Hi I’m Evan from Gregg’s Greenway Cycles and
I’m going to show you how to put your chain back on your chain rings after it’s fallen
off. The most common issues is that the derailleur overshifts and kind of shoots the chain past
that smallest chain ring and on to the inside of the bottom bracket there. So if you’re
kind of getting that issue there, the easiest thing to do is kind of push your derailleur
cage down so you got a bunch of slack in your chain. Just pick up here from the bottom,
and then set it right there on top of those, on top of that smallest chain ring. And then
move your hand away so you don’t pinch it in the sprockets. And then just kind of let
that one sit back there. And that’s how you put your chain back on after it’s fallen off.
