|If you swap cassettes do you need two chains?||JL|

|With the discussions about having two cassettes for different riding situations or 2 wheels for different situations, do you need a chain to "match" the different cassette? Or would this only matter if you made a big jump between cassettes? Knowing you can sometimes have problems when changing a chain without a new cassette due to wear, does it matter? Or does it depend on how often you switch between them?
Thanks in advance. Happy riding.

|First, the chain has to be long enough to cover the big/big sprocket combination for whatever cassette is on the bike.
Second, if you replace your chain before it gets too worn, say whenever two pins are between 12 1/16 and 12 1/8 inches apart, you should be able to interchange cassettes without any concern.
