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.
Never tell me the odds.
