2
Find the slippage
Look for places where the chain has become jammed
against the frame - these jams must be addressed
before the bike can be ridden again.
3
Use the quick release if the chain is jammed
 In this case, it's a good idea to loosen the
quick release on the rear wheel and undo the
wheel nut to loosen the rear wheel from the
chain. When you've loosened the rear wheel
enough, simply pull the chain out.
4
Loosen the chain if your bike has a rear
derailleur
For bikes without a derailleur, catch the chain
on the sprocket by pedaling. Many bikes don't
have derailleur's. The easiest way to repair a
loose chain in this case is to hook the chain
onto the rear sprocket, hook as much of the chain
as you can on the bottom of the front sprocket,
and carefully turn the pedal backwards.
5
Turn the pedals on a bike without a derailleur.
Turning the pedals is easier if you elevate the
bike's rear wheel. To do so, you can put the bike
on a stand or prop up the rear of the frame with
any materials on hand. 
6
Pedal forward gently until the bike is in the
right gear
Get on your bike and pedal forward at a slow
speed. If your bike has gears, your chain may
"jump" back into the gear it was in when the
slippage occurred. Otherwise, keep changing gear
until the chain pedals smoothly.
7
Perform some final checks
Before you resume normal riding, make sure you
are in a comfortable gear. If your bike has them,
change gears on both the rear and front
derailleur's until your chain turns smoothly
without producing any noise.
8
Get a new chain and a chain tool
To replace a bike chain that is broken or that
has fallen off completely, you will need to have
a new chain that fits your bike and a chain tool
to remove the old chain and secure the new chain.
You will also need a replacement pin to connect
the new chain, but this should come with the new
bike chain.
9
Assess the damage and attempt a repair if possible
Stop and lay your bike on its side with the
sprocket-up. If the chain is still on your bike,
then look for the break in your chain. If the
chain is hanging loose from the sprocket, then it
should be easy to find the two separated ends of
the chain. If the chain has fallen off
completely, then you can just start to put on the
new chain.
10
Remove the damaged chain from the bike
11
Elevate the back wheel
If you have a bike rack or hanging hook on the
wall of your garage that allows you to hang the
bike with its sprockets facing you, use it. If
not, you may want to simply prop up the rear of
the bike's frame with wood, boxes, cinder blocks,
or whatever else you have lying around.
12
Pull the chain through the rear derailleur
Some bikes, like fixed-gear bikes and bikes with
a hub gear shifting mechanism, don't have a
derailleur. In these cases, simply thread the
chain onto the rear sprocket as directed in the
next step, turning the wheel as needed.
13
Weave the chain through the front derailleur cage
Most modern bikes with gears have a metal
mechanism near the front sprocket that moves to
shift the chain from one front gear to another. 
14
Connect the two ends of the chain
