    Place spiders on it.

    They will fix it in short order.

    You have to take the wheel off and untangle it, then put the wheel back on again. I believe they call it the spider sprockets or something...

    Easy, take rear wheel off then take part of chain out and play with it.

    chainbreaker.

    most chains now have a link that can be compressed and taken apart without breaking the chain.
