Chain replacement help - San Jose bay area

Anyone in the San Jose/Santa Cruz area have tools for chain replacement? I'll need to do mine in the next few weeks and really don't want to pay the dealer $120 for it.

zbart,
you may want to check the date on a post asking for help before responding. The date of the original post was over 2 years ago. I doubt the guy still needs help....he may not even have the bike anymore......sean

Have the bike. Did the work long time ago then did it again a couple of months ago. Haven't been frequenting the board of late (especially this area) and just noticed these replies.
