Yeah...when your cigar is finished you can smoke it from the other end as well http://www.velonews.com/tech/report/art ... 642.0.html
I don't know about all of you, but I'm getting tired of talking about chains, even though the mail keeps pouring in about them. I do want to add, though, that Shimano's Wayne Stetina just told me that he would never advise flipping over a 10-speed chain, so this method is only for 9-speed and lower.
Leaving chains, here are a couple of related questions to which a single answer might suffice.
I did the FYI for exactly that.. as a "for your information" you can read it and say thanks or be civil and disagree in some other manner or make fun of it and start an arguement, as we have seen here often. There's lots of different opinion (and sources) on what is good and bad in purchasing and using equipment here, chains and otherwise, I appreciate all of it, and even some of the cocky guys that talk like they know everything. Actually there is a very long series of articles (in tech news) in velonews on chains which is why you see Lennard Zinn saying:

I think I have to agree with Lennard on that point as there have also been long discussions here about it! I will say that I personally have never flipped a chain but it appears to be an old trick that works.. and I plan to on my current one (about half way through the expected life) and asked an experienced mechanic about it and he said it can't hurt. Ultimately it's the roloff chain tool that will decide when the chain must be replaced for me.
