A bicycle chain is a 'roller chain' that has the task of transferring power from the cranks to the rear wheel of the bike thus propelling it. Most bicycle chains are made from alloy steel, but some are chrome plated or stainless steel to prevent rust, or simply for good looks. Chains will vary in width depending on the amount of gears you have, most are 3/32 inch for use with geared systems and then come in 'speeds' which needs to matched to the cassette, ie a 10 speed cassette will need a 10 speed chain and so on. Track bikes or single speeds often run 1/8 inch rings so will need a 1/8 inch chain as well, these will have larger plates to aid stopping on a fixed wheel, which can add extra stress to a chain.

So a chain splitter is required and will be for any chain you purchase.
If it isn't suitable can you tell me which ones are please.
Please note that special cassette requirements will need specific chains. If you have gear such as XT, XTR, Ultegra, Dura-Ace, X01, XX1, Force, Red, 22 range or Campagnolo then please contact us using the "Contact Us" link at the top of the Wiggle homepage.
Or do I need a longer dérailleur?
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance on this question.
Is the chain compatible with the Shimano Ultegra 6500 9 Speed Road Cassette ?
Thanks in advance
As far as I'm aware, you can use any combination of SRAM & shimano running gear as long as it's all the same speed.
This should be find for your Shimano Ultegra cassette
want to replace my chain and I have a SRAM PG850 cassette. I want to ask if PC9xx series chains are compatible with my cassette or I should get an 8speed chain (PC8xx)?
Sadly Wiggle don't seem to have the PC870 chain which is the 8 speed equivalent of the PC971.
