Popped in one of the larger Tescos tonight for a few bits and noticed they're now selling chains as part of their bike bits range. Although it's in a Tesco blister pack the chain is stamped up FG50.

Also available online http://www.tesco.com/direct/activequipm ... d=663-8122

Sorry if this is old news but I've browsed Tesco's range of bike stuff loads of times and this is definitely the first time I've seen chains.

These are £2.50 in my local Tesco now. Picked up 3. Very pleased and handy for refreshing old bikes.

Thanks to the original poster.

Yeah, I got a couple as well. Come with power link style connector - which did a great job of fixing a chain about to break. Claim to be suitable for 10 to 24 speed bikes. Was tempting to grab more of them, but my regular rides are 9 speed.

.....and thanks for the update.

Cleared out the remaining stock from two of my local Tescos, two chains from each.

You can never have enough spare chains :D .

Excuse my ignorance, but what does the FG stand for, I know HG bits are Shimano "Hyperglide", but FG just shows search results for "food grade".

I can confirm that despite being available from Tesco that they are not food grade.
