Do I need a new Bicycle CHAIN when I get new chainrings?

We always recommend a new chain with new chainrings.

The chain and the chainrings work together — and wear together.  When new rings are paired with a used chain, the used chain — even if it is not worn out — will accelerate wear on the new chainrings.  So, even if the old chain is not worn too much, it’s best to start with both items new.

To assist with that, WickWerks now carries KMC chains that work well with our chainrings.  You can get both here together and be all set to go.
