Title: What Chain
Post by: Socialist Clarion Call on January 13, 2017, 07:37:09 pm
Having hopefully identified my chain tension problems (chain is badly worn after 300 ml) . I know need sage advice on the best chain I should use, needs to be 1/8 chainring and sprocket are all 1/8!

Kmc z1?  They used to be about 4 quid on planet x.

Best buy a dozen at that price. I tend to use SRAM PC1. PC1n if I'm feeling bling. They usually come in around £7-9

Actually Chain Reaction (sic) are doing PC1n for 5.49... I'd buy some but Ive got a couple of chains stashed away already...

Something nickel plated - less likely to rust.

The gold coloured KMC is often cheapest and looks a bit bling.
