    • With the new chain, place it on the current gear that your bike is in.

    • Note: If you don't know which gear your bike is in place the chain on one of the middle gears.

    • Thread one end of the chain through the derailleur from top to bottom so it is in the shape of a 'S'.

    • Next place the chain on the back gears, making sure that it is threaded through the guide.
