No, you don't always have to change rings and cogs when you get a new chain. Look carefully at the teeth on your rings and cogs. If they're shaped like shark fins, and you're having problems with skipping, yeah, you need new rings or cogs, but if they're not totally stretched and distorted, and you're not skipping, don't worry about it. FWIW, I've seen some really ugly rings and cogs that worked just fine.

Thanks for the input brother, much appreciated.

to put this as clearly as i can; keep the old chain (dont bin it) when you fit the new one so that if it doesnt work with your old cassette & skips you can keep the old chain working & still be able to ride until you buy a new cassette which will not skip.
