“We are excited to offer these e-bike components and provide our consumers more replacement options,” says Bentley Lee, KMC Chain USA’s Head of Sales. “E-bikes put much more strain on the drivetrain and wear faster than a traditional bike, but many riders don’t replace drivetrain components when they should. Maintaining your drivetrain is important to maximize chain life and efficiency.”
