i need advice on what kind of chain i need to buy to replace my old one which has now snapped twice in as many months so needs replacing. I know i need an especially toughend chain designed especially for E-Bikes and as a moutain biker its especially nessary so this is my first time. My bike uses a Bosch motor with a derailier gear changer. the problem is they seem to come in narrow medium or large widths so this is were i need advice and if you can put me onto a link were to buy it from. cheers

I had the same problem with my Haibike and thought it a faulty chain but no one wanted to know. I bought the same make & type of chain and never had another problem with it.

Hi welcome
thats odd
i normally change my chain every 1000 miles or so
standard chains at that
you need to get a chain for what ever speed cassette you have
