Anyone know at what point to you need to change your chain? How much slack should there be? I know you can adjust the slack with the adjustments on the back wheel. looks like mine at at the end of the adjustment. Is there a time that the sprocket should be changed out too?

Thanks,

Chain and sprockets should be changed at the same time to get maximum life out of your components. If the chain is out of adjustment you can always cut out a link or two to get back on target. As for sprocket changes, that will become self evident when the teeth start to fold over on themselves.
