FB: What is a chain and how does it work?

NC: Fundamentally, a chain’s there to provide that vital link between the engine and the rear wheel in the most effective way. It transmits energy through a succession of roller bearings from the front sprocket to the rear sprocket, propelling the bike in a forward motion.
